Where I Stand
I am running for city council as an independent candidate because I believe the council should be non-partisan. I own a green business on East Lake Street -- halfway between Hiawatha and the Mississippi River -- that specializes in recycling and repairing outdoor clothing and gear. I was born in Minneapolis, graduated from the University of Minnesota and have lived in our great city most of my life. I believe in living a sustainable lifestyle, which is why I was a year-round bike commuter for nearly 20 years! I currently live in Ericsson and have been here for more than 15 years.
I believe that listening to customers and employees and truly understanding what they need is a key ingredient to a successful business and I will do the same for the residents of Ward 12. Residents of Ward 12 will know where I stand on the issues and can count on me to have open lines of communication and transparency on issues they are concerned about so we can work together collaboratively to rebuild trust in our city government. As a small business owner, I know what it’s like to work long hours to make a small business thrive. I will do the same for residents of Ward 12 and together we will make our city shine again.
