Council Member's Message

One of my responsibilities as a Council Member is to represent the City of Minneapolis on a variety of outside boards and commissions. One of these is the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO), which is headquartered in Ward 1. I encourage you to visit their Projects page to learn more about the innovative work they are doing in and around Northeast Minneapolis to improve our stormwater management capabilities and the health and water quality of our river.

I also serve as the Minneapolis representative on the Transportation Advisory Board (TAB), as well as on the TAB Executive Committee.  TAB works in conjunction with the Metropolitan Council as a joint decision-making body charged with transportation planning for our region. Every two years, the TAB collaborates with the Met Council to review and allocate federal transportation funds for local projects that meet our regional transportation needs. See the story below ("Highlights of the 2020 Regional Solicitation") for more details about our work on the 2020 Regional Solicitation.

As a City of Minneapolis representative on the board of Meet Minneapolis, I have worked hard to strengthen the relationship between this organization dedicated to the promotion of Minneapolis as a visitor destination and the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. As a result of this new partnership, Meet Minneapolis has showcased Northeast Minneapolis Arts District artists for selected First Thursday events at their downtown Visitors Center, features numerous Northeast artists and businesses on their Visitor website, and helps promote the ART365 Initiative (see the story below for upcoming ART365 events).
