I want to tell you how grateful I am for the opportunity to serve you on the Ramsey County Board. I am committed to this effort and have been very busy working on behalf of the residents and communities in my district and the County as a whole.
In my new role, I have the honor of serving as the Chair of the Board’s Legislative Committee, Active Living Ramsey Communities, and liaison to the Library Board. I am also a member of numerous other committees and community boards in the areas of transit, roads, crime and violence prevention, early childhood, and workforce solutions. I continually look for new ways to work with others to improve and enhance our quality of life and welcome your continued advice and suggestions to solve the problems we face.
I also ask your help to continue serving our communities by making a contribution to my campaign before the end of the year. Since I will not be on the ballot again until 2016, the maximum contribution allowed this year is $250. You can send a check to the McGuire Volunteer Committee, PO Box 130806, Roseville, MN, 55113 or contribute online by clicking the button below.
