Jim Swartwood is a rental ..., 2 Nov 2009 [cached]
Jim Swartwood is a rental property owner with properties in several parts of the city. He is co-director of Metro Property Rights Action Committee. He is also publisher of the Watchdog, a free-circulation newspaper distributed in Minneapolis that keeps an eye on abusive government. Earlier in life, he was a group supervisor at the Hennepin County Juvenile Center, working with troubled young people; and briefly with the Glen Lake Home School. He has extensive experience building and remodeling houses. Jim is single but in a happy relationship, and he has a grown son.
Swartwood (Board of Estimate & Taxation): Believing that low taxes are a precondition to economic growth which the city needs to solve its financial problems, he would look for waste in government and try to keep property-tax increases to a minimum. Pork-barrel projects and dubious functions such as the city's "problem properties unit" would not enjoy his support.

I called Jim Swartwood, the other co-director of the group, asking for his help. I knew that Jim had recently bought some foreclosed properties. Yes, he gave me 19 locations over the phone.
I had typed up the addresses given by Swartwood, Gangestad, and Bear, so that I could quickly determine which were in the same vicinity and not waste gas with unnecessarily long drives between stops.
Nancy Osterman’s story, 24 July 2007 [cached]
Jim Swartwood, editor of the Watchdog newspaper, contacted Nancy Osterman to see what might be done.
Called to the scene, Watchdog newspaper editor Jim Swartwood caught the incident on film.
The garage door was open so that Swartwood could determine that the material came from the garage. Fearful of arrest, Swartwood and his companion beat a hasty exit and had lunch in a nearby restaurant - but not before taking photographs.
A photograph of Swartwood standing next to the backhoe was posted on the Watchdog web site.
