Reporter | Minneapolis city government

Andy Mannix covers Minneapolis city government for the Star Tribune. He joined the paper in January 2016, and previously covered in-depth criminal justice and mass incarceration, with a data bent. 

"Mannix teaches at the University of Minnesota journalism school, of which he's an alumnus. He holds a master's degree from University of California-Berkeley. His work for the Star Tribune includes investigative reports on the use of solitary confinement in Minnesota prisons, how Minneapolis police inappropriately urged paramedics to sedate people with ketamine and why a bottleneck in mental health care wasted millions of taxpayers dollars while delaying treatment from those who most need it. He's also covered enterprise and breaking news topics, including several high-profile officer-involved shootings in the Twin Cities region in recent years. Prior to joining the Star Tribune, Mannix wrote about a variety of topics, such as crime, LGBT rights and politics, for publications including The Seattle Times, MinnPost, City Pages and The Minnesota Daily. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife. "
