I am honored to have this opportunity to further the tradition of exceptional parks in the City of Minneapolis. Keeping our neighborhood parks and urban forest maintained, providing fun and diverse recreational and athletic opportunities, and truly engaging the community in planning for future parks are my continuing priorities.
I look forward to working not only with my fellow Commissioners and staff, but also our friends at the City, County, State and others to collaborate and provide the best value for our tax dollars. Going forward I hope you will consider our parks not only a place for relaxation and recreation, but as a place to volunteer. Together we can keep our green spaces, playing fields and waters preserved for generations to come.
In my second term I look forward to adding to our system along the river front, by increasing our trail system and getting shovels in the ground to bring back Hall's Island!

City of Minneapolis voters elect nine commissioners every four years: one from each of the six park districts, and three that serve at-large. View District Map [PDF]
