North Loop residents Whitney Place and Matt Lewis invite you to meet Irene Fernando, the DFL and Labor endorsed candidate for Hennepin County Commissioner in District 2! 

The County Commission is a 7-person board that oversees important issues for our community. Irene will bring new energy, expertise, and insight to the County Commission, and she wants to make sure the community is at the center of conversations and decisions. 

Irene co-founded a youth leadership nonprofit, was a Bush Foundation Fellow, and currently leads around organizational design and talent management at Thrivent. She has earned the support from dozens of elected officials, including the current County Commissioner Linda Higgins, as well as the support from community leaders across the metro area.

The event is from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, with remarks beginning around 7:15pm. This is a public event, and we encourage you to invite others! Pryes is located along the Mississippi River and has ample room for parking, if needed:
