Lisa Bender is running for her second term to represent Ward 10 on the Minneapolis City Council. Drawing on her experience as a city planner and organizer, Lisa has emerged as a policy leader in the City Council, authoring ordinances that protect workers, commit to safe streets for all users, and help increase housing options in a city with rising housing costs. Lisa is a collaborative, smart and energetic leader who is committed to increasing voter turnout and inviting everyone into the political and policy-making process. The power of local government comes from a small group of committed people fighting hard to make a difference in people’s everyday lives, and Lisa aims to continue to engage that power of community.
