Luke Hellier Announces Campaign for Lakeville City Council
Campaign will focus on fiscal responsibility and enacting reforms
for efficient and effective government
(LAKEVILLE, MN) – Today, longtime Lakeville resident Luke Hellier announced his campaign for Lakeville City Council. Hellier’s campaign will emphasize efforts to transform local government to be more transparent and accessible while enacting reforms for more efficient and effective government to benefit taxpayers.
“I love Lakeville. It’s the greatest city in Minnesota. My wife and I made the decision to raise our children here after living away for a period of time after college. We grew up here and we want our kids to grow up in the same supportive, thriving community” said Hellier.
Luke Hellier attended Lake Marion Elementary School, Kenwood Trail Junior High School, and is a graduate of Lakeville High School. For the past ten years, Hellier has served as the academic adviser for the Youth in Government Program for the Lakeville Area Public Schools.

“I believe one of the most important things a person can do is to serve their community – which is why I decided to run for City Council. I deeply believe in the vision that Lakeville residents have set for our community and I want to work together with diverse voices to create a great place to raise a family, start a business, or to retire with the highest standard of living.”
Hellier currently serves on the Dakota County Planning Commission and ISD194 Long Term Facilities Planning Committee. Luke works for a public relations firm in Minneapolis and lives near Crystal Lake with his wife, Josi, and daughters, Betty and Annie. The Hellier’s attend Family of Christ Lutheran Church.
