District 4

There are seven Anoka County Commissioners who represent the fourth largest county in the state. Commissioners address citizen concerns, and oversee federal and state requirements to ensure county operations and services  run smoothly. District 4 includes: Fridley, Columbia Heights, Hilltop and part of Spring Lake Park


I’ve received excellent training for this job with North Metro Mayors Association where I’ve been the Community Relations Manager for the past three years. The North Metro Mayors is a civic non-profit of 15 cities and 20 community partners.   Through this work, I have intimately learned about city operations, policy creation, and how to effectively work through legislation to get things done.

Experience and Community Engagement

Mandy is known for contributing to her community. For a decade she has worked on projects to improve and build our county. Her experience with the North Metro Mayors Association, a civic non-profit comprised of 15 cities and 20 community partners, allows her to listen to the needs and goals of our area from diverse perspectives. She has helped to raise significant funds for mental health and addiction services, educational services, Springbrook Nature Center, SACA Food Shelf, and the arts.

Vibrant. Collaborative. Inclusive.

You Can Help



I could not have done this without your partnership and I am grateful to YOU.

This race is unique. There has only been one family in this seat since 1954 and we are part of shaping the next chapter. Four years ago, the primary turnout for this area was approximately 2,500 total votes. Today there were nearly 7,000 votes! Great turnout everybody!

For Anoka County Commission District 4, I received a total of 3,408 votes. The second place finisher got 1,667. See chart. THANK YOU!

We are not finished yet! November is long way away and we assume nothing. TeamMandy will hit the ground running tomorrow morning to keep moving forward to the general election on Tuesday, November 6!

“I first learned of Mandy Meisner during the fundraising for the Fridley Middle School class trip to go to Washington DC.  Her ability to dig in and take on a challenge is simply amazing.  She played a key role in ensuring the development of the new Fridley City Hall.  There is no doubt in my mind that community comes first for Mandy.

Therefore, I will be supporting Mandy to represent our communities as our Anoka County Commissioner.  My vote goes to Mandy.  Vote Mandy for Anoka County Commissioner!”
