A clean environment lifts everyone

We live in a city with beautiful parks and lakes. One of the Twin Cities’ most beautiful assets, Minnehaha Creek, crosses the south half of the city and flows into the Mississippi River. We have an obligation to keep trash and litter out of our waterways and neighborhoods. A neighborhood clean of trash and litter helps the environment and uplifts the vitality and health of our city. We can do so much better to keep our city clean. I support increasing the frequency of street cleaning, providing more trash cans, and employing effective anti-litter campaigns. Litter affects all of us, and it's something that we can easily address to make our city and our environment healthier.
