Dear Fellow Villagers,
I love living in St. Anthony Village. My wife, Jenifer, and I moved here from Washington state with our daughter in 2014, sight unseen. We were attracted by the strong school district, the proximity to the University of Minnesota (where Jenifer is a professor) and the quiet neighborhood. Now, we genuinely love our neighbors and the strong sense of community we feel here. St. Anthony is home.
However, when Philando Castile was killed in 2016 by a St. Anthony police officer, I – along with many others in our community – felt the need to deeply examine factors in our community that might have set the stage for this tragedy. While we have much to love and appreciate here in St. Anthony, there is considerable room for improvement.
We must work harder as a community to promote greater race and class equity. We should be regularly examining how we can improve our community and work together to guarantee St. Anthony is a safe and equitable place for all to live.
It’s for these reasons and more that I am running for St. Anthony City Council in this election.
Above all, I care a great deal about everyone living in St. Anthony. My law career has afforded me the opportunity to support and fight for the most underserved members of our community. If elected, I will bring this passion for justice and equity to St. Anthony and beyond.
