About Andrew Johnson

Andrew Johnson was elected November 5th, 2013 and is the first millennial to serve on the Minneapolis City Council. He brings a unique perspective as the first IT professional to serve on the council, with eight years of experience as a systems engineer at Target Corporation. Andrew is also a small business owner, through which he works for an education non-profit that helps empower teachers via technology in the classroom.

Andrew understands the importance of neighborhood engagement and dialogue. During his time as Longfellow Community Council President, Andrew actively led many initiatives, including revitalization efforts on East Lake Street, implementing a new website, greater resident engagement on the Minnehaha Avenue reconstruction project, and helped establish the first community hops garden in the nation.

Andrew believes in the importance of a transparent, responsive government. Nationally he pioneered the concept of a federal taxpayer receipt, a concept which was later implemented by the Obama Administration. He will be working with his colleagues on open data to ensure government information is more accessible to the public.

Andrew owns a home in the Howe neighborhood. For fun, Andrew likes to rock climb, take his dog Rosie to the Minnehaha off-leash area, bicycle around the city’s great trails, read (mostly non-fiction), and spend time with friends.
