Hello neighbors. My name is Danielle Swift. I am a mother, a community organizer and an Eastsider. I am extremely humbled to have an opportunity to run to be your next City Council member in Ward 6. I am currently active in organizing around housing for renters and homeowners, policy advocacy on a city and state level as well as zoning and ordinances. I believe that community has the solutions and resources within to strengthen and build vibrant, healthy communities. When we actively listen to one another we are able to see new perspectives and shape well rounded ideas and solutions that are suitable for the diverse community that is Ward 6.

    “I endorse Danielle because she is rooted in community. I have worked with her professionally around housing issues in North Minneapolis and worked with her in the street as activists. Danielle is a problem solver that understands that values matter and should never be compromised. Danielle is also involved in the cooperative movement and that is key to lead in an area that is as economically divested in and poverty stricken as the area she will represent. She is also a connector and a navigator. I am excited for Danielle because she will always put people first and use innovation and ingenuity to empower the community and build generational opportunities with and for them.”
