Candidate Support for Lisa Peterson Bender
I’m writing to express my support for Lisa Bender’s campaign for the Ward 10 City Council seat. I was inspired to support Lisa after meeting her and hearing about her vision for our Ward. Her goal of improving the accessibility of our streets to pedestrians and bicyclists, and improving public transit is one that speaks to me particularly, and her words are backed up by her experience in this area, both as the founder of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition and her work at MnDOT making walking and bicycling to school safer for children. I also feel that she is a candidate who knows how to work with many different types of people to get things done, and that she will bring a much-needed ability to reach out to the many different populations in our diverse Ward.
