We are happy to welcome Claire Mathews-Lingen to the St. Anthony Park Community Council. She will be working with us on a weekly basis throughout the year as the first student community representative for the new Civic Stewardship Apprentice Program (CSAP).
A sophomore at Avalon school, Claire is eager to delve into the world of local community-oriented civic work with the Council. She hopes to one-day work in local level politics, perhaps as a city councilperson, she says. The national level partisan playground is less appealing, she says.
