Meet the DMNA 2020 Board Candidates

Elections to the Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association will take place at the 2020 Virtual Meeting on Tueday, October 27.  We have five candidates for four seats.  Three seats have three-year terms, and one seat has a one-year term.  The top three voter getters will take the three-year terms. The fourth will take a one-year term (which is filling out the remainder of a term vacated by a board member who moved out of the neighborhood). Click on the candidate’s name or “read more” to see their complete application.

You must register to attend the Annual Meeting to vote in the election.  Please register via the link below.  You will receive a follow-up email that explains how to login to Zoom the night of the meeting.
