South St. Anthony Park Delegates

Bill Anderson – Environment Committee

I am a forty year veteran of the neighborhood.  My skills include planning, landscape architecture, environmental protection, public health, public safety and emergency preparedness.  I want to preserve and enhance our urban village ambiance. We have a small town sense of community that needs to be preserved.

Corey Butler

I’m a psychology professor and relatively new resident to Saint Paul, having moved here in 2019.  I want to be part of the solution for making life better in our neighborhood and our city. Issues I feel strongly about include walkable neighborhoods, better public transit, and environmental protection.

Amanda Longley – Land Use Committee

Stark Mueller – Land Use Committee

We have roots in the neighborhood. Our family of 6 is young and plans to be here for a long time. Our children attend local schools and preschools. I live in the neighborhood and see many of my neighbors on a regular basis. I own and operate Minnepau Veterinary Clinic next to HPC. 

Melissa Pappas – Finances, Executive & Equity Committee


North St. Anthony Park Delegates

Ben Bauer – Environmental & Equity Committee

I moved to St. Anthony Park 2 years ago and am looking to get more involved in the community. I work as a lawyer and am interested in governance, but I am more interested in advocating for equity and creating a better local community.

John Maurer – Equity Committee

I am constantly learning about my neighbors, their needs, and interests. Learning to listen to others in the community guides me to endeavor to make good decisions and take actions that help my neighbors and neighborhood succeed and prosper.

Michael Russelle – Finance & Environment Committee

I have been active, to a greater or lesser extent, in civic affairs most of my adult life, 40 years of which have been in St. Anthony Park. I care about our neighborhood, believe that civic participation is a right and a necessity, and have the time, energy, skills, and ideas to serve on the Board.

Pat Thompson – Transportation Committee

I’ve been on the board for two terms and on the Transportation Committee for about eight years, co-chairing that committee for about five years.  I grow a lot of plants and think a lot about what makes cities places people want to live, in ways that work best given the climate crisis.

Bailey Waters – Transportation Committee

I am a young professional who is interested and engaged in community matters through the lens of transportation. I am a civil engineer and I work and live in Saint Anthony Park.
