Letter: Falcon Heights man announces candidacy for City Council


My name is Ronald Dixon, and I am running for Falcon Heights City Council. Over the next several months, I hope to earn your support.

I first developed an interested in politics during high school, where I participated in the debate and speech programs. During college, I managed a high school speech and debate team of my own, interned in the Minnesota Legislature and Gov. Dayton’s office, wrote for the school newspaper and further developed my political identity. I currently serve as a revenue examiner for the Minnesota Department of Revenue, where I help fellow taxpayers with their income, property and withholding tax returns. I am also a proud AFSCME member, and I recently became a union steward to help my co-workers better understand their employee rights.

I am running on a platform that calls for police accountability, community action, fiscal discipline and progressive solutions. As a councilmember, I hope to bring issues to the table that will help make Falcon Heights an even better place to live. Moreover, as a millennial, I hope to encourage young people to engage in local campaigns and, ultimately, make their voices heard by heading to the polls. Finally, in the wake of the Philando Castile shooting, my goal is to implement reforms that improve our policing practices and mend the relationship between law enforcement and the rest of the community.

Feel free to reach out at 763-242-0816 or Dixon4FalconHeights@gmail.com to have a conversation with me about your concerns for Falcon Heights.


Ronald Dixon, Falcon Heights
