Vote Out Kt Jacobs

Disgraced City Council member Kay “Kt” Jacobs will be voted out of office in Columbia Heights, MN on account of her racist behavior, lying to the council, and repeatedly violating the city’s personal and professional code of conduct. She has been called upon to resign by two City Councils and more than 2000 residents.

Columbia Heights General Election

Kt Jacobs will be voted out of office on November 5, 2024.

Council Member Kt Jacobs interfered with the 2022 election when she used a 2 hour phone call to harass a candidate and question his racial identity. After she was identified by caller ID, she privately claimed responsibility and tearfully apologized to the City Council. However, she then fabricated a preposterous story, saying that she didn’t make the phone call herself. This triggered an outside investigation which found that Kt Jacobs did make the harassing call. She has since been unanimously censured and stripped of her appointments by her fellow Council Members, both Republicans and Democrats. She can no longer legitimately represent the citizens of Columbia Heights. Her lies and racist behavior clearly show that she is unfit for office. She has been asked to resign multiple times by two City Councils and residents alike.

Special Election Canceled

Columbia Heights voters formed a committee to recall Kt Jacobs from office. They drafted a petition that met the city’s charter rules but fell just short of Minnesota’s state law. Unfortunately, the city attorney failed to notice this shortcoming and approved the petition anyway. More than 2000 voter signatures were collected to trigger a special election. When the petition was accepted by the City Council, Kt Jacobs sued her own city. After her case was thrown out, she appealed to the Supreme Court which judged that the petition did not meet the standards of state law. In short, Kt Jacobs can not be recalled in a special election for lying or breaking the city’s code of conduct. However, she will be voted out in the general election on November 5, 2024. She remains censured and punished for her actions.
