Jill Henricksen, At-Large

I have been a Como resident for more than 15 years, and have had the opportunity to serve on the District Council board during this last year. I live at the west end of the neighborhood with my husband, two sons and our beloved dog Henry.

During this past year on the board, I've served as a member of the Neighborhood Relations Committee, helping support and advance our inclusive community outreach efforts. I helped organize a story-telling event at the Como Park firepits last fall and participated in a youth event at Como High School, where my older son attends school.

I'd like to be able to continue this work through another term on the board. The Como Community Council is doing valuable work to support and build the social and physical landscape of our community. Making sure every resident has the chance to be engaged in this work is important to me. Building an equitable and inclusive community aligns with my values.

My professional background is in community, housing, and economic development. I currently work for MN Housing Partnership as a Community Development Manager providing technical assistance to nonprofits, local governments and tribal nations throughout the country. I love to come home to this community.
