New Entrant to Minneapolis Ward 3 City Council Race Brings Proven Leadership and Results to Residents

Tim Bildsoe, community organizer, businessperson and North Loop resident, officially announces his candidacy for the open Ward 3 Minneapolis City Council seat.  Bildsoe is seeking to represent his community to improve the livability for all residents and the prosperity for local businesses.

As president of the North Loop Neighborhood Association, Tim Bildsoe has led initiatives to secure funding to repair crumbling roads, add green space and engage neighbors on important issues facing the community.

Bildsoe brings a wealth of experience to local government leadership. His public service resume includes 16 years of successful, collaborative work as a member of the Plymouth City Council. As a council member, he worked tirelessly on quality of life initiatives to improve the lives of his constituents. He brought about positive change in the areas of neighborhood safety, exceptional city services, well-maintained infrastructure and open space preservation. 

As a Minneapolis council member, Bildsoe is poised to hit the ground running as he continues to serve fellow Minneapolis Ward 3 residents.

“I’m very proud to live and work in Minneapolis and I look forward to serving all of the people of Ward 3.  We need proven leadership and experience as Minneapolis faces the real and growing challenges of affordability, development and neighborhood safety throughout the city,” said Bildsoe.  

Bildsoe’s top priorities include:

  • Strategic economic development
  • Improved communication from City Hall
  • A safe Downtown that is a destination for residents, workers and visitors
  • Improved pedestrian safety
  • Mississippi Riverfront environment
  • 21st century transportation system
  • A better value for city tax dollars

 “I understand how government works – and, as importantly, I bring a passion for Minneapolis. I want to help build on its success,” Bildsoe said.

On November 7, Ward 3 voters will have the opportunity to help shape a strong future for Minneapolis by electing Tim Bildsoe.
