Chris Coleman (2017)

Christopher "Chris" B. Coleman (born September 1, 1961 in Saint Paul , Minnesota ) is an American politician of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party and was Mayor of Saint Paul from 2006 to 2018 .

Coleman is the son of Nick Coleman , longtime Democratic leader in the Minnesota Senate . In 2005 he ran for the office of mayor of the Minnesota capital, Saint Paul. He was able to prevail against his party colleague Randy Kelly with 69 percent of the vote. This is also due to the loss of popularity of Kelly, who supported the Republican George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election campaign and thus incurred popular resentment in the democratically dominated Saint Paul.

Shortly after taking office in January 2006, Coleman banned smoking in all restaurants and pubs within the city.
