Alec Armon, Community Project Coordinator


Alec was born and raised in Rochester, MN and graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2018, where he studied Political Science and Latin American Studies with a focus on public policy and economic justice. As an undergraduate, he co-founded a student organization that redistributed excess dining hall food to community organizations addressing food insecurity. He gained experience in economic development working for an entrepreneurship nonprofit in Mexico City following graduation and most recently learned more about local government in his hometown through an internship with the City of Rochester. Alec believes in the power of participatory democracy to foster inclusive community development and is looking forward to working alongside the Hamline-Midway community on neighborhood initiatives that ensure all residents are represented.
