Christine Lim

"Janne brings people of diverse backgrounds together and gets them listening to and talking with each other. She has a talent for building a strong community, and has been doing this for years. This is just one of many reasons that we need her on city council."

Ben Strasser

"Janne has been my landlord for several years now. She has created a fantastic community around her building through cherry harvests, grilling parties, and group gardening. Janne consistently impresses me with her depth of knowledge on local issues."

Anne Supplee

"Janne is someone who listens well and can bring different community constituents together to build a stronger Minneapolis."

Sam DelSerra

"Janne works side by side with her neighbors and community members to make sure that each person feels heard and understood."

Julia Curran

"I first met Janne when we were both Minneapolis election judges in the same precinct. Without Janne’s support and persistent encouragement through the years, I wouldn’t have become involved with the city’s Pedestrian Advisory Council, the Bicycle Coalition,, or the East Isles Residents Association. Ward 7 hasn't had a real City Council race since before I could vote. As a nearly lifelong Ward 7 resident, I’m excited to finally cast a meaningful vote in a city council race!"

Eliot Altbaum

"I first met Janne to pour over the nitty-gritty details of urban policy. She knows the issues, listens carefully, and brings people together."

Dan Polhamer

"Janne is hands-down the most informed, capable and pragmatically forward-thinking citizen I know."

Bill Lindeke

"Janne Flisrand has in spades the three qualities I look for in a political leader: she’s smart, hard-working, and is an open-minded, respectful listener. I’m routinely inspired by Janne’s passionate commitment to a Minneapolis that’s safe, affordable, and a humane city that treats everyone with respect. Over the years, I’ve watched Janne turn her passion into real change, and I believe she would be an excellent voice for Ward 7 on the City Council. It’s time for a change in City Hall!"

Emily Strasser

"Janne’s passion for this city, her deep commitment to listening to diverse voices, advocating for those who are underserved by the city, and finding workable solutions are just what this city needs."

Katherine Teiken

"Janne Flisrand is a strong advocate for all the people of Minneapolis. Through my work with Janne, I have continually seen her be a champion for those who feel that they do not have a voice. She will work hard to address the inequities that are inherent throughout the community, and celebrate the progress of every step that is taken on the journey towards that goal."

Michael Bischoff

"Janne is especially good at supporting the leadership and development of the people around her. As a City Council Member, Janne would recognize and support leadership from all corners of the ward and city. When I got cancer, Janne rallied people and money to support me and my family. Janne rallies community support for many people and needs. Janne knows how to bring people together to make a more equitable, sustainable, and thriving city."

Soleil Ho

"Janne is the most civic-minded person that I know... a fierce defender of tenants' rights, public transportation, and people of color's right to walk freely in their city without fear of harassment."

Elaine Marigold Avery

"Minneapolis City Council needs more smart women like Janne Flisrand."

Blue Delliquanti

"Janne is extremely well-informed and responsive to the city's and individuals' needs. I’m excited to see someone interested in sustainable city policies running for City Council!"

John Edwards

"Janne is unstoppable! A powerfully effective activist who seeks out talented people, supports them, and rallies them to a common cause. Minneapolis will be lucky to have her on the City Council."

Charles Garland

"I've known Janne since college and I can't think of anyone who could care more about what impacts all members of her community, but more than that she actually works really hard until the solution is found and implemented. Ward 7 is very very lucky to have the opportunity to elect Janne to represent their interest!"

Scott Shaffer

"Janne has already done great work advancing issues that are important to us: sustainable transportation and progressive housing policy. We can’t wait to see what she’ll accomplish in City Hall."

Kurt Schultz

"I’ve worked with Janne in different capacities for the past 10 years and she has earned my greatest respect and admiration as well as my friendship. She is intelligent, thoughtful, sincere, principled, hardworking, and incredibly effective at everything she sets her mind to. At her core, Janne is committed to making the world a better place for this generation and the next and she does this by making her community a better place. Janne lives her life with intention and purpose with her actions reflecting her words and her beliefs.

Janne is a gifted problem solver, communicator, and consensus builder. I have watched in admiration as she navigates challenging situations, bridging the divide that results from strong personalities and firmly held positions. She ensures that everyone is heard and respected."

Parker Evans

"Janne represents a boost to the progressive wing of the Council that will serve Minneapolis well."

Joey Senkyr

"She'll be a voice for everyone in Ward 7."

Fritz Bogott

"I have been friends with Janne for more than thirty years. Please support her for Minneapolis City Council!"

Amy Brugh

"I support Janne's bid for election to the City Council because she is smart, committed, and persistent."

Hunter Henley

"I support Janne because she took the time to call me and not only tell me about her ideas, but asked about mine and listened. I feel like she values my opinions and ideas."

Galen Dorpalen-Barry

"Janne is both passionate and compassionate. She cares about the city of Minneapolis and thinks deeply about the effects of her actions. This applies to everything from advocating for tenants rights to managing the bicycle garage in the back of her property. As a city council member, I am sure that Janne will be a voice for productive change and healthy growth in the city."

Chris Farstad

"Because affordable housing is a human right."

Janelle Nivens

"I support Janne's vision for Minneapolis."

Diana Nock

"Janne is a smart, capable person."

Martha Brown

"We need someone willing to listen to new ideas and who is interested in creating links among the neighborhoods in our area."

Alicia Valenti

"She is real and represents her ward well!"

TJ Hanrahan

"I admire her focus on bike/pedestrian issues and affordable housing.

Mimi Amelang

I’m excited to see a true progressive running to represent Ward 7. I’m a renter and appreciate that Janne advocates for us renters!

Charles Karter

Janne is a woman of the people, let’s give her a path to fight for people.

Jonathan Foster

The 7th ward is one of the most diverse in our city, from the lakes, through Bryn Mawr, and all the way to Elliot Park. Janne understands that the key to representing the entire 7th ward is to listen to the entire 7th ward. Her ideas are great, but she also knows no one alone can have all the answers. She understands that we are all in this together, and we’ll all be better off with her, inclusive, thoughtful, and collaborative problem solving skills on the city council.

Natasha Villanueva

We need to commit to intervening in housing equity in Minneapolis!
