Friends and neighbors, with an upcoming St. Paul City Council election, I wanted to share my confidence that re-electing Amy Brendmoen is our best choice as I attribute so much of the progress of St. Paul to her leadership. Amy’s energy, passion for our community, and solution-oriented approach resonate with my ideal public official.
I met Amy when she knocked on my door in the spring of 2015. I presented her with a challenge I faced as a coach at Como Park High School. She assured me she was able and willing to help. To have my City Council member actively solve a fundraising challenge so we can provide equitable athletic programming was the first of many times I’ve reached out to her and found her engagement exceptional. To have such a responsive partnership with our neighborhood leadership is a blessing that I appreciate.
Since that first project, Amy provided essential support with the construction and new facilities at our community high school. She’s proven she cares about the little things in our neighborhood with her willingness to support our student athletes. She understands how to connect and build relationships to move our city forward.
I know the same caring person who cheers for student athletes works day and night to address the bigger challenges our city faces. Her vision is building a better St. Paul for my children by investing in infrastructure, schools, and housing solutions, while providing answers in real time to address public safety concerns.
Like Amy, I believe our city is a great place and is moving in the right direction. She has earned my trust and confidence—and my vote.
