Mandy Meisner, Why I’m running for Anoka County Commissioner?

 

About Mandy

. I grew up in the small town of Cloquet, Minnesota where my parents were born and raised, then moved to the Twin Cities with my family to follow my father’s job.  I graduated from the Perpich Center for Arts Education where I studied music, then went on to attend trade school at The Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. My first apartment was in Columbia Heights where I lived for four years before starting a big adventure– marriage. We bought a house in Fridley 17 years ago and have two children attending Fridley Middle School.
