Mayor of St. Anthony VillageSt. AnthonyHennepinMN
I have lived in St. Anthony, MN for the past 5 years with my wife and daughter. I ran for City Council in 2017 and lost narrowly to the incumbent. If elected Mayor, I will create a more inclusive community, leading with openness and transparency that is absent in our current government.

Mayor of St. Anthony Village

I am running for Mayor of St. Anthony Village because I believe our village needs a strong mayor who can lead with empathy and actively bring the community into the decision-making process.

Since 2014, I have lived in St. Anthony with my wife Jenifer and my daughter Mia, a 7th grader at St. Anthony Middle School (the youngest of four). I grew up in Arizona, and lived in Washington State for 8 years before moving to Minnesota. I worked as an immigration and family law attorney in these three state where I fought on behalf of people seeking to follow the law, achieve justice, and determine their own version of the American Dream.

I strongly believe in civic engagement and have participated in local government everywhere I have lived. The tragic death of Philando Castile in 2016 spurred me to action in St. Anthony, along with many of my fellow neighbors. Since his death, I have been involved in many community initiatives working to improve St. Anthony and foster greater community involvement in city governance.

If elected, I will push for transparency, accessibility, and accountability in local government. I will champion goals and actions that help our community maintain and increase affordable housing options. I will promote and further commercial development. Above all, I will always actively and intentionally support grassroots community efforts focused on sustainability, equity, and social justice.

As Mayor, I will always strive for a more responsive city government and advocate for the residents of St. Anthony.
