Council Member's Message

2018 brings a new Mayor and several new faces on our City Council, kicked off by an inaugural celebration that highlighted our City’s multi-faceted artists, cultures and communities.  Now I look forward to getting down to the work of governance with my new and returning colleagues.

I will be continuing as the Chair of Transportation & Public Works Committee and will now also be Vice Chair of the Zoning & Planning Committee. A new Council term brings some restructuring of our Council Committees, so I look forward to some new responsibilities and opportunities, serving on Intergovernmental Relations, Housing Policy & Development, Enterprise, and Elections & Rules.

All Council Members also serve on a variety of outside boards, commissions and committees. One of my primary appointments is to the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization. I have served on the MWMO Board for several years and was re-elected as Board Chair earlier this month. I couldn't be prouder of the work MWMO does to protect our river and engage our community in water stewardship. Click HERE to read their online magazine for details about their many accomplishments in the past year.

Other appointments include Meet Minneapolis, Meet Minneapolis Executive Committee, Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership, Move Minneapolis, the Rail Policy Group, the Water Advisory Board and the Zero Waste Policy group. I will also continue to serve on the Metropolitan Council’s Transportation Advisory Board and the State Aid Rules Committee, two groups involved in regional transportation policy planning.

I look forward to what we can accomplish together in the next four years!
