Campaign Co-Chair Karen J. Anderson

Former Mayor of Minnetonka

I have known Deb since we began working together for our schools on the Hopkins School District Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) over a decade ago. Throughout our tenure on the LAC, Deb demonstrated passion for public service, dedication to our kids and community, and an incredible work ethic as she advocated to maintain and improve the quality of our schools. In addition to these traits so well-suited to serving on the Minnetonka City Council, Deb cares about what matters to her neighbors, and has studied regional trends and policy. Beyond these qualifying virtues, Deb’s skill in building relationships, her energy and collaborative spirit will make her an outstanding city council person.
