About Jenn

I mostly grew up in South Carolina although my Minnesota roots run deep. My father, Terrance, grew up on a farm near Alexandria, so I was exposed to Minnesota’s culture from an early age from my dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I chose to move to Minnesota because of family ties and the Minnesota charm I’d come to love. When it was time to buy my first house in 2014 -- here on Noble Ave -- I chose Robbinsdale because of its unique character and stories from my aunt who grew up on Crystal Lake and attended Robbinsdale High School.

I love Robbinsdale for its small-town feel and city-level amenities. I enjoy being able to walk to grocery stores and downtown restaurants and breweries. I’m a fan of our many bike paths. I try to cycle to work one day a week at the Target Northern Campus in Brooklyn Park, where I’m a software engineer. I also have a 14-year-old tabby cat, Susi, who you may see lounging in my front window. You may have seen me walking around the neighborhood when I had a foster dog (or two!). As a queer woman, I hope that someday soon Robbinsdale can have a pride event of our own.

In 2016, I had an amazing opportunity to take a Fulbright grant in Denmark. I rented out my house during that time because I planned to return to Robbinsdale. That experience gave me the unique perspective of being a landlord and working with city rules and regulations.

I’m running for city council because I know that we can create an even more accessible and progressive Robbinsdale -- one that's more transit-friendly, safer for bikes and pedestrians, affordable, and inclusive. My top priorities are transportation, especially the Blue Line Extension, ensuring city workers are paid a living wage and supporting a 10% cap on rent increases.

It would mean a lot to me if you would host a lawn sign to support my campaign. Please call or text me at (612)293-8525 or email info@jenn4mn.com, and we’ll deliver one to you.

The new Robbinsdale Ward 3

In 2022, Ward 3 was redistricted. It now includes the mid-western most part of Robbinsdale, roughly, north of 36th, west of 81 and south of 40th. That includes the Robbinsdale Middle School, downtown south of the Elim and Sacred Heart churches, but new in 2022, it does not include Lee Park or the Lee Square Cooperative.

The map below outlines the new ward 3. You can check your specific address on the MN SOS pollfinder website.
