Now, Jeff will apply his talents of listening and acting to Hennepin County. In his time as mayor, he has seen the needs that cities in the District 1 have. He wants to work towards fulfilling those needs, just as he has fulfilled many of the needs of Brooklyn Park.
Mayor Lunde is experienced and ready. He has had national acclaim. In 2019 he was named one of The Hill’s “Six mayors getting it done.” He earned that title by rising above the politics and focusing on the issues in front of him to get things done. Jeff focused on the community more than on his career or the demands of a party. That’s what makes him a great leader.
