“Heidi leads with truth and joy, and sees the vast potential in our Hopkins community. As mothers and community leaders, Heidi and I have had many conversations about what our structures and practices need to be in order for all families and community members to thrive in the incredibly diverse City of Hopkins. Heidi’s experience as an engineering technician for the City of Minneapolis, combined with her background in political science and commitment to Hopkins, make her a great fit for City Council. I trust her to lead on issues like economic development (support for small businesses), housing, transportation, and community safety. Please join me in supporting Heidi Garrido for Hopkins City Council.”
