It’s not often that Hennepin County Residents are asked to fill an open seat on the County Board.  For us in SW Minneapolis and St. Louis Park, it’s been 15 years. That’s why it’s so important for us to choose the right person. That person is Marion Greene.

Marion is a proven leader who served in the Minnesota Legislature. Her colleagues quickly embraced her leading voice on important issues like healthcare and early childhood.  Marion serves on two of the highest profile non-profit boards in our community - OutFront Minnesota and Minnesotans United for All Families.  And Marion knows public officials serve first and foremost to represent their constituents, speaking regularly about the importance of inviting more engagement with County government.

I serve with Marion on the boards of OutFront and Minnesotans United.  I know she’s a strong progressive who will fight for policies that benefit us all.

 And as a former Minneapolis City Council member, I see she’s got the strength and the smarts to turn passion into action and actually get things done.

These are just a few reasons I’m supporting Marion Greene for County Board. 

I hope you’ll join me.
