Long Prairie City Mayor

The role of city mayor can vary from city to city. However, the mayor is usually the head of the city and may represent the city in front of other government bodies. A mayor also usually has a role in proposing a city budget that is approved by the city council. The budget influences the services the city provides to its residents. Mayors sometimes are voting members of city council, and in some cities the mayor is in charge of city council meetings.

I am in my second term as Mayor of Long Prairie, MN. Within those years I have attended numerous conferences along with taking many classes to better myself as Mayor. I have learned what I can and cannot do, as well as discovering organizations that can help the community.  I have a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Science, Psychology and Gerontology. I also have a degree in Early Childhood and Family Education. My work experience has been substitute teaching, I also have been a private business owner, and currently a manager of the Long Prairie Senior Center. My current and previous employment in addition to my education has provided me with a strong understanding of what the community needs for all ages and cultures.
I will continue to work on having a welcoming community for all. Our city is highly diverse. I will also continue to work on the housing crisis and the lack of licensed daycare. Our city is growing due to the industries in it and has caused issues. Affordable housing is needed. Offering more opportunities for the community to get to know each other, new friendships can be made. I will continue to look for prospects to help fill our need for housing and daycare through grants and partnerships.
Open communication with local law enforcement is a must, that is how we find out what is needed. Having meetings and open forums to educate the community. Encouraging citizens to talk to the police officers when they have an issue or question. Reassuring citizens that the officers are there to help them. Work with teachers to educate their students. Being a substitute teacher, I have discussions with the students on safety along with what is wrong or right. Education is the key for all ages.
