Maggie Zimmerman

I have lived in Como Park for 9 years and plan to call this place home for decades to come. I filled a vacancy on the D10 board in November of 2016 and am hopeful I can continue to serve my community representing Sub-District 2 in the coming two years. My husband and I live on the north side of the lake and have two young children – one in preschool and one in 1st grade at Chelsea Heights, and big fluffy dog. I have been a faculty member at Saint Paul Community College since 2008. My academic background is in Geology and Environmental Science, which I put to use on the D10 Environmental Committee as well as in my classroom.
Prior to joining the board last fall, I’ve been involved in representing District 10 as part of the City of St. Paul committee that assessed proposals for the new Como Pavilion vendor, and representing our district on the first Dockside evaluation committee. I am active in the PTO at Chelsea Heights Elementary School, and I participate in the Como Active Citizens Network. I volunteer locally at the International Institute of MN, helping to do home set-ups for incoming refugee families, and helping to organize and run the Ward 5 caucuses.
Like so many Como residents, I was drawn to and love this neighborhood because it represents the broad character of St. Paul and an urban metropolis while also maintaining the small-town feel of an invested and involved community. I think a strong District committee can help build a better neighborhood for all the residents -- our homes don’t end at our doorsteps!
