What do you love about the Summit-University District? I love the diversity of our neighborhood - people, architecture, places to gather, and things to do. On my street alone we have young people renting, families with small children, older retired friends who've been here forever, a Habitat for Humanity family and more. I'm interested in keeping what we all cherish and building off that.
How have you been involved in your community in the past? I've engaged in the communities where I've lived and worked in meaningful ways. I've served on two planning commissions, the St. Paul Mayor's advisory council for people with disabilities, the Minneapolis Downtown Council and board service on two affordable housing organizations serving those in need. I look forward to the opportunity to bring a new perspective to the SUPC Board.
Please tell us about why you are running to join the SUPC Board: I love this neighborhood and have planted roots here. I care about the vibrancy of the community where we live, work, and play. I want to to preserve the good stuff, introduce new thinking that compliments, and supports our community with attention to the important work of a clean, green and safe living environment.
Your subdistrict's ballot has three candidate categories this year.
