GENERAL MEMBER REPRESENTATIVE
City of Burnsville - 14 years
14 years as member of MPSTMA/MSTMA
am the department liaison with the recreation department where I
work to streamline communication and cooperation between the two
departments. Responsible for scheduling and purchasing materials
needed for projects as well as developing and tracking the HOC
budget. My responsibilities also include hiring seasonal staff for
the various parks department areas.
Why are you running for office?
I have been a member of the Minnesota chapter of the STMA for 14
years and a member of the national organization for 16. In that
time, I have benefited from countless workshops, as well as the
networking opportunities that this organization provides. I am very
interested in taking a role helping the MPSTMA continue to be a
great organization and resource for its members as well as the
municipalities and businesses they work for.
What issues should MPSTMA focus on for the future of the
I feel that there will be continued pressure on department budgets
that the MPSTMA could possibly help with by holding seminars that
address working through tight budgets. The addition of the round
table discussions has been great and I would like to see more of
these with various park maintenance topics. I would also like to
ensure that the membership numbers stay strong and the MPSTMA keeps
themselves in the forefront of the parks maintenance world.
