The District 10 Como Community Council is accepting applications for an executive director. The application period closes Friday, Aug. 21. The council hopes to have the position filled by mid-September. The executive director is the principal staff position for District 10 and provides support for all of the council’s activities.
“We are looking for an experienced candidate who wishes to work with a wide range of community members on a variety of issues,” said board chair Ryan Flynn.
The duties of the executive director will include assisting with the council’s communications, administrations, finances and community development. This is in addition to helping maintain and expand the many initiatives and community projects of District 10. The most important role of the executive director is to ensure that community members get accurate and up-to-date information about local government proposals that affect the neighborhoods within District 10.
The District 10 Como Community Council is a nonprofit organization made up of elected, volunteer residents. Its mission is to “inform, educate and connect the Como Park neighborhood to increase community pride and confidence.” District 10 is one of 17 district councils in St. Paul that promote community participation in the city’s planning and decisionmaking processes.
