Three Rivers
Park Commissioner

District 1

Welcome Friends and Neighbors!

I am asking for your vote to re-elect me to the Three Rivers Park Board of Commissioners.

It has been my honor to represent the residents of Corcoran, Greenfield, Hanover, Independence, Long Lake, Loretto, Maple Plain, Medicine Lake, Medina, Minnetrista, Minnetonka Beach, Mound, New Hope, Orono, Plymouth, Rockford, Rogers, Spring Park, St. Bonifacius and Wayzata on the Three Rivers Park Board.

Three Rivers Parks receive over 14 million visits each year.  That is more than double the population of our state!

It is important to preserve these community assets for the future. To support that I will continue to:

  • Strive for outstanding visitor satisfaction
  • Help make our parks accessible for everyone
  • Ensure a financially stable park system
  • Protect our natural resources

I thank you for your support and welcome your vote this November.
