One of the most important things elected officials can do is to listen and engage with diverse voices in the community. If elected to the Lakeville City Council, I will seek out the opinions of residents and encourage active civic engagement. As part of that process, I’ve set up a survey so you can tell me about what issues are most important to you. As always, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org to share your views.
If you’re interested in filling out the survey, click here.
While door-knocking last night, multiple discussions with voters quickly turned to the importance of maintaining our city’s infrastructure with a deep focus on fixing our roads. I couldn’t agree more. That’s why fixing is one of my top priorities if elected to the city council. If you notice your road in disrepair, be sure to use the city’s ‘Report a Pothole’ system. It’s pretty simple. Just click here to report your road.
We just got back the final photos for our family photo shoot from earlier this summer. The photos of the girls turned out wonderfully.
Here’s a sneak peek of some family photos we recently had done by Twin Cities photographer Laura Robinson.
What a wonderful night to travel around to chat so many neighbors and friends. One of the biggest highlights was when the kids at one stop made thank you cards for the Lakeville Police Officers who stopped by. Check out the gallery below.
First time candidate makes his campaign official
(LAKEVILLE, MN) – Today, long time Lakeville resident Luke Hellier made his campaign for city council official. Hellier filed his affidavit of candidacy with the Lakeville City Clerk’s office.
“I am deeply humbled by the outpouring support from friends, family, and members of our community. The campaign has gotten off to a fast start and being able to talk to voters directly has been a highlight,” says Hellier. “The most common issues I am asked about are plans for city development and property taxes. This tells me that, if elected, I should focus on those issues and increasing awareness and participation in the process of city government.”
Luke plans to continue meeting voters to hear about their priorities and attending community events, like National Night Out. He describes his campaign as an effort to work with diverse voices to create a great place to raise a family, start a business, or 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.

The City of Lakeville is looking for volunteers to help build Land of Amazement 2.0 at Steve Michaud Park. Land of Amazement has a special place in our hearts, Josi was on the original design committee as a kindergartner at Orchard Lake Elementary. It’s so fun to watch the transformation as our daughters enjoy the park on a regular basis. Come out and help build the next phase.
