Since the DFL convention I’ve been re-connecting with my family and celebrating the milestones of my daughters’ graduation from the University of Minnesota and Patrick Henry High School.
I’m proud of the work I’ve accomplished over the last 3 1/2 years. I’ve built relationships with so many amazing Minneapolis residents during my tenure, I know will continue to grow.
While I’m grateful for the support from so many residents across the city, I made a commitment to honor and abide by our party’s endorsement. Adults set examples for our young people every day through our actions. With that in mind, I’ve decided to suspend my re-election campaign for Minneapolis School Board.
I’m looking forward to finishing this term the same way I started, with a clear focus on students and supporting my colleagues preparing for a new installation of a brand-new board.
Thank you too all the Minneapolis residents who entrusted me to serve. It has been a true honor to serve our students and families.
