Posted on October 6, 2015 - 1:02pm

Polls for the 2015 HMC Board of Directors Election are now posted online Click here to vote now!

Hamline Midway Coalition is seeking candidates for its Board of Directors. Anyone age 16 or older that resides within, owns property within, or owns a business that is headquartered and principally operates within Hamline Midway is eligible to run AND vote in the board election! If you’re interested in working with an informed and engaged group of neighbors to focus on local issues around transportation, development, sustainability and more, consider running for the board. We work with the understanding that big change begins at the local level, and only by working together, can we ensure a prosperous future for the entire community. Candidates from traditionally underrepresented populations are particularly encouraged to run.

There are three seats up for election in 2015, one in each of the three neighborhood sub districts (A, B, and C). Sub-district A covers the area from Transfer Rd. to Snelling Ave. Sub-district B spans the area from Snelling Ave to Hamline Ave. Sub-district C covers Hamline Ave. to Lexington Ave. Candidates can run for a seat in the sub-district in which they live, own property or own a business which is headquartered there.
Anyone interested in running for a seat on the Board of Directors must return a completed application to the Executive Director no later than 8:00pm, Sunday, November 15.  To request an application – or for more information about serving on the HMC Board of Directors, please contact Michael Jon Olson at 651-494-7682 or michaeljon[at]hamlinemidway[dot]org.
