The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners oversee the management and administration of 2.40 billion dollar budget and more than 9,000 employee’s that service public works, transportation, safety, libraries and the municipal buildings. The seven county commissioners also set your Hennepin Cunty property taxes.
I am running for Hennepin County Commissioner in District One because I want to see Hennepin County and Minnesota residents have the opportunity to live in safe, nurturing cities with opportunities for everyone. I would like to continue to improve our communities without overburdening our citizens with excessive taxes.
We need provide services to assist in providing safe affordable housing for everyone and mental heath services for those in need.
I have lived in Hennepin County more than 50 year’s, I was raised with 4 brothers and 4 sisters in New Hope and raised my family in Crystal and Brooklyn Park. I have seen the communities grow from farmland with small subdivisions to the thriving communities they are today.
I want to help create policies to strengthen our families, support or seniors and keep communities strong, safe and affordable.
