Hellier Announces Campaign for Mayor
Lakeville City Councilman Luke Hellier Announces His Campaign for Lakeville Mayor – Moving Lakeville Forward by focusing on public safety, rebuilding our economy, and promoting responsible growth
(LAKEVILLE, MN) – Today, Lakeville City Councilman Luke Hellier announced his campaign for Lakeville Mayor. Hellier was elected to City Council in 2016 and is currently in the middle of his second term.
Hellier plans to continue efforts to responsibly manage Lakeville’s growth and assist in continued recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am proud of how Lakeville – including its staff and leadership – weathered the storms of the last years which have fundamentally changed the ways Lakeville families rely on their community. They spend more time in their neighborhoods, eat and shop here more consistently, and depend on our parks and services in new ways. Our businesses face new challenges in response to COVID. We have deepened our conviction that police and fire are essential to the care of our entire community. Residents today expect more from their public servants and I plan to continue to lead on these issues to move Lakeville forward.”
As Lakeville has grown to the largest city in Dakota County and ninth largest in the state, Hellier has voted to expand Lakeville’s police force to ensure our community is the best place to live and raise a family. While on the council, Hellier has also championed consistent increase in support for the Fire Department through investing in equipment and advocating for boosting the retirement fund for the volunteer fire fighters.
Hellier added, “It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve the Lakeville community for the last five years on City Council. As Mayor I will build on our past successes and continue Lakeville’s legacy of leadership,” said Hellier.
Luke Hellier attended Lake Marion Elementary School, Kenwood Trail Junior High School, and is a graduate of Lakeville High School. Hellier previously served on the Dakota County Planning Commission and ISD194 Long Term Facilities Planning Committee. He’s also an active volunteer with the Lakeville Public Safety Foundation. Luke works for a public relations firm in Minneapolis and lives near Crystal Lake with his wife, Josi, and children Betty, Annie, and Walter. For more information visit www.votelukehellier.com.
