St. Paul, Minn – Sunday afternoon, at a gathering outside her home to a crowd of over 60 supporters, Marit Brock announced her candidacy for St. Paul’s City Council, Ward 2 for November 2015. Ward 2 includes the neighborhoods of West 7th Street, the West Side, Summit Hill, Lowertown, and the Downtown business district.
Marit is committed to bringing people together to build a future and grow thriving communities. “Our urban neighborhoods are an ideal place to live, work, and raise a family. But they require ongoing investment. Our communities are at their best when we come together to support the entrepreneurial spirit of our businesses, protect the places where we gather with our friends and family to build memories, and honor the diversity of one another—be it income, background, race or interests. When we come together, we can continue to build on the amazing things already happening, making our vision for our community a reality.”
Marit Brock most recently served as President of the Fort Road Federation, is the Secretary for Senate District 65, founded and Co-Chairs the Little Bohemia Neighborhood Association, and is active in Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Professionally, she leads the human resources department for a medical services company. She lives in Ward 2 in St. Paul with her husband, Tom, and their two children, Leo and Anna.
