LETTER: Bringing leadership to the Falcon Heights council

To the Editor:

Leadership experience matters. I have led the Environment Commission in Falcon Heights for the last two years and successfully completed five different initiatives. I co-led an interfaith initiative to get the 2014 school lunch bill passed to equitably provide school lunches to all children across the state, regardless of whether their families fall behind on their lunch bill. 

As a longtime leader of SD66 on St. Paul’s bonding committee, I’ve led many initiatives, including expansion of the Como Pool, development of the Como Woodlands Outdoor Classroom and development of the Lexington Avenue bicycle corridor. My leadership experience includes serving as a law clerk to Judge John Finley, health care liaison assistant in Sen. Paul Wellstone’s office, Minnesota Justice Foundation legal intern, Minnesota Senate intern and Ramsey County head election judge. During law-school at Hamline University I also co-founded an organization that included among its members current County Attorney John Choi, Rep. John Lesch and as adviser, Ramsey County Commissioner Mary Jo McGuire.

In my professional life I’ve led public health and health and human services projects for numerous years in leadership roles with the University of Minnesota and the Wilder Foundation. I know how to get things done and work effectively with people. I have the support of numerous citizens and policymakers as well as the endorsement of the Saint Paul Regional Labor Federation and Outfront Minnesota. I hope my leadership experience and commitment to Falcon Heights can earn your endorsement and vote for city council on Nov. 7.

Mark Miazga, Falcon Heights City Council candidate
