Letter: Falcon Heights council candidate

As I have a door knocked the city these last few weeks, I have continued to learn about the issues on citizens’ minds in advance of the Falcon Heights City Council election on Nov. 7.

My conversations have reinforced my belief that my leadership, research and legislative experiences over the last 20-plus years will be an excellent fit for moving the city forward on a host of issues.

My professional background includes managing tobacco, alcohol, aging, law enforcement, nutrition and other health and human services projects at the University of Minnesota and Wilder Foundation. In addition to other legislative experience I have also done the following: current chair of Falcon Heights Environment Commission, numerous years on the St. Paul Long Range Capital Improvement Budget Committee, lobbied for the 2014 school lunch law and testified before numerous state legislative committees on its benefits to children and society, 10-plus years service as a Ramsey County head election judge, law clerk to Ramsey County judge, and liaison assistant in the late Sen. Paul Wellstone’s office.

I look forward to meeting more of the community over the coming weeks, earning your trust and hopefully bringing my professional and legislative experience along with a thoughtful, reasoned approach to governing to work for you on the Falcon Heights City Council.

Mark Miazga
Falcon Heights
City Council candidate
