Beginning in August the Ward 5 team has a new line up! Our longtime Legislative Aide, Kim O’Brien, has spread her wings and headed off to new adventures; we wish her the very best! 

My Executive Assistant, Donna Sanders, and I now welcome Hwa Jeong Kim, a North End / Ward 5 resident as our new Legislative Aide. Hwa Jeong is a housing professional who comes to us by the way of the Saint Paul Planning Commission and her neighborhood council. We also welcome Meegan Hall, a Como Park / Ward 5 resident and communications professional, who supports the team on a part-time basis. 

Expect continued excellence in constituent service, strong advocacy for Ward 5 and positive leadership for Saint Paul. Call us at 651-266-8650 or email Ward5@stpaul.gov with your questions, ideas, comments and concerns.

Over 400 National Night Out events took place across St. Paul.
