"After getting to know Russ over the last 10 years there is no doubt in my mind that he ready, able and needed on the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. His deep and passionate commitment to racial justice, a healthy environment and authentic community engagement are undeniable. As an activist pushing the city council to adopt pollinator-friendly planting practices; as a volunteer board member for Restorative Justice Community Action helping get youth back on track; and as chair of the Minneapolis Food Council helping promote access to healthier foods for everyone, he has demonstrated not only how much he cares about our city and its future, but also, how effective he can be at making a real difference. I look forward to voting for him in 2017."
