Position title: Mayor, Rochester, MN
Why did you decide to join the steering committee?
Working with a group dedicated to helping Mayor’s be successful by introducing them to new ideas, resources and through sharing successes was very enticing to me.
What makes MIP unique from other organizations?
This was a smaller, closer knit group with round table sharing opportunities that felt comfortable and meaningful. The support for new Mayors was so helpful, especially given the times we love in politically and socially!
If you could give one piece of advice to a new mayor on what you’ve learned in your role, what would it be?
Take the opportunity to meet with and really get to know your fellow Mayors! They know what you’re going through like no one else can. You will learn and grow through this experience!
