Audrey Thayer for Bemidji City Council - Ward 1
Our family has lived in the area since 1989. We attended the schools, lived and worked in Bemidji. For the last 10 years, I have served as an instructor at the Leech Lake Tribal College. Currently finishing a doctoral dissertation in Leadership from the University of St. Thomas. My past work history has been in county, federal, non-profits, and tribal. I bring you experience, I stand on fiscal responsibility, social justice equity, and believe our community can do better. I have served on the City of Bemidji Parks and Recreation Commission. Sat on numerous racial justice boards concerned with bringing community relations. For those folks, that know my history in community, I am direct and honest. I do believe we are in the "new normal" and our city needs to prepare for challenges with our budget, support local businesses, and keep an eye on our infrastructure such as the current situation with the water system. We could use a law enforcement oversight commission. I am asking for your support for Bemidji City Council.
