As a mom of two young kids, I spend a lot of time walking up and down my block. And it's such a great block: there are people of all ages, different religious faiths, different races and ethnic backgrounds, super progressives and super conservatives, renters and homeowners. And when we have the chance to gather on someone's patio, we have such a great time together. I love living in Minneapolis because it is a place where neighbors can really connect and care about each other, no matter our differences. I am voting for Jeremy Schroeder in 2017 to represent Ward 11 because he loves Minneapolis, too, and wants to make sure that it is a place where all residents have the opportunity to thrive.
