Metropolitan State demonstrates strong civic engagement

Posted November 23, 2020

Minnesotans continue to distinguish themselves by turning in the highest voting rate in the country, with nearly 80% of eligible voters casting a ballot. The results of the Metro State Votes effort will not be known until next year, but it is expected that once again Metropolitan State will be a contender for a Best in Class award from the All in Democracy Challenge. Several Metropolitan State students, alums and faculty members campaigned for elected office and won, including:

  • Jess Hanson, student in Advocacy and Political Leadership, newly elected, MN House District 56A
  • Emma Greenman, faculty in Advocacy and Political Leadership, newly elected in MN District 63B
  • Rep. Hodan Hassan, re-elected in District 62A
  • Rep. Erin Koegle, MAPL UMD alumna, re-elected in District 37A
  • Rep. Eric Lucero, alumnus, re-elected in District 30B
  • Rep. Mohamud Noor, re-elected in District 60B
  • Sen. Roger Chamberlain, re-elected in Sen. District 38
  • Sen. Sandy Pappas, re-elected in Sen. District 65
  • Robyn Gulley, faculty in Social Sciences, elected to the West Saint Paul City Council
  • Tamara Grady, Advocacy and Political Leadership student, elected to the Osseo School Board

  • Jim Vue, alumnus, elected to Saint Paul School Board, where he will serve alongside alumni Zuki Ellis and Jeanelle Foster and current student Chauntyll Allen
