I live in Wenonah. When I'm not volunteering with the campaign, I'm busy with my work as a Contracts and Policy Analyst at the Department of Administration for the State of Minnesota. I'm also very active with my labor union, MAPE. I'm a steward and the Negotiations Representative for my local. I enjoy hanging out with my friends to talk about the difficulties of adulting and destroying the patriarchy at the same time. I've also started kickboxing recently.
I moved into Wenonah a year ago. I decided right away that I wanted to be active in my community. But, managing a house by yourself is hard and after just getting my law degree at William Mitchell, I took it easy and became a Block Leader and did one-time gigs like being an election judge.
After the presidential election, I realized I was ready to get more involved. I went to the DFL Senate District 63 December meeting. Jeremy was there as a candidate for Ward 11. In all honesty, I had been seeing the need for a more engaged City Councilperson. I had even considered running myself. After hearing Jeremy speak at the SD 63 meeting, I realized that I wanted Jeremy to be my City Councilperson.
I have done everything I can to support Jeremy as a volunteer on the campaign and also ensure a fair, democratic race for all candidates! I've door knocked, phone banked, addressed envelopes to delegates, joined the DFL Ward 11 Caucus and Convention Committee and its Rules Sub-Committee, trained to and became the precinct convener for precinct 11-8 at the Ward 11 caucus. I also hosted a house party for Jeremy!
If you want a Councilperson who will actually listen to your problems and do something about them, regardless of whether you're an old friend or a new resident, then support Jeremy. If you want someone to actually get things done, then support Jeremy. If you want someone who will actually engage with constituents before making decisions at City Council, support Jeremy. I'm confident you'll notice the difference.
