Maggie Zimmerman, Subdistrict 2
I have lived in Como Park for 8 years. I am interested in serving my community in a more direct fashion and in being a voice for young families in the neighborhood. My husband and I have two young children – one in preschool and one in 1st grade at Chelsea Heights. I have been a faculty member at Saint Paul Community College since 2008. My academic background is in Geology and Environmental Science.
At Saint Paul College, I spend each day interacting with the incredibly wide variety of folks that call St. Paul and the greater metro area home. My students represent every single demographic you might find in Como Park, and their diversity creates the strong foundation of our community. Their drive to improve themselves and their families is a source of daily inspiration.
In the last year, my family made the decision to reinvest in our home and make Como Park our long-term community. I’ve been involved in representing District 10 over the last few years as part of the City of St .Paul committee that assessed proposals for the new Como Pavilion vendor, and more recently I’ve represented 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 as well.
Just as a strong PTO can help build a strong and vibrant local elementary school, I think a strong District committee can help build a better neighborhood for all the residents. Our homes don’t end at our doorsteps.
