Who is Jono?
Hi, my name is Jono! I am an urban planner, proud South High graduate, and a product of our parks. I do community-based engagement, planning, and research work for a wide array of public, private, and non-profit organizations in the Twin Cities. I am also an active community member! Here I am painting a mural with my neighbors:
I am currently chair of the Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Open Spaces Committee. I spearheaded the development of one of Minneapolis' first parklets in the CARAG neighborhood. I have a degree in English from Pacific Lutheran University and a masters degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
Why is Jono running
"I'm running for Park Board to advocate for a park system that works for everybody. Today and for generations to come."
I am running for Park Board to make our parks friendlier for everybody. I have the experience, the passion, and the ideas to be an effective, responsive steward of our beloved parks.
As Park Board Commissioner for District 4, I am passionate about working on these key areas.
