Moving Brooklyn Park forward. Together.


I am a twenty year resident of Brooklyn Park. During my time here I have worked tirelessly to create the Brooklyn Park we deserve — one that is prepared for
the challenges of our future, and poised for the opportunities.

Changes are happening rapidly throughout Minnesota and throughout the world.
We need proactive, expert leadership that will plan for change instead of react to it.

People who will lead us to a thriving, vibrant, inclusive and successful future.
I ask you for your vote to Brooklyn Park City Council, Central District.

Meet Teshite.

``I was born in Oromo, Ethiopia, and the tree you see in my logo is the Odaa tree—a symbol from my country of origin. This tree illustrates how trees, roots, and leaves all ultimately depend on each other to thrive. Brooklyn Park is also known as Tree City. I find trees to be a powerful symbol of what can happen when systems work together for progress and growth.``
