Official results are in on NRP Policy Board Election

More than 100 Minneapolis residents attended the NRP Policy Board neighborhood representative election on Thursday, November 21. Sixty-seven electors, chosen by their neighborhood boards, elected four neighborhood representatives to serve on the 2003 NRP Policy Board.

Those elected include: Ron Ravensborg as the at-large representative, Nicholas T. Kakos as the protection neighborhood representative, Carol Pass as the redirection neighborhood representative, and Cam Gordon as the revitalization neighborhood representative. Julia Burman, Debbie Evans, Zachary Korb and Greg Bastien were elected as Policy Board alternates.

The 19-member Policy Board provides overall direction to the program and is primarily responsible for the review and approval of Neighborhood Action Plans. The NRP Policy Board election is held annually in November to fill four neighborhood resident seats on the Board. One candidate is elected to represent each of the three types of NRP neighborhoods: redirection, revitalization, and protection. An at-large representative is also elected. Neighborhood representatives serve one-year terms beginning in January.

Also serving on the Policy Board are public officials from the City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, the Minneapolis Public School Board, the Minneapolis Public Library Board, and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. Community interest groups hold an additional five seats and one seat each goes to a state senator and a state representative.

Thanks to all the people who chose to participate in the election. Special thanks to the League of Women Voters of Minneapolis for conducting this year's election and forums. Comments, questions or suggestions about the NRP election process can be submitted to:
