Luke Hellier is a graduate of Lakeville High School, where he met his wife Josi. Following their marriage and living outside of Lakeville, Luke & Josi moved back to Lakeville in 2014 to raise their family. Luke and Josi have five children. Betty (9), Annie (7), Wally (4), and twins coming in December!
As a lifelong community volunteer, Hellier was first elected to Lakeville City Council in 2016 and re-elected in 2020. Upon the retirement announcement of Mayor Doug Anderson, Hellier stepped up to run for Mayor. Mayor Anderson supports Hellier’s campaign.
Luke’s priorities for Lakeville including ensuring the city remains the best place to raise a family, start a business, or retire with the highest standard of living.
Over the last decade Lakeville has grown to the 7th largest city in the Twin Cities and the 30th fastest growing city in America. This unprecedented growth creates opportunities for further investment in public safety including police and fire. Hellier's plan for public safety was part of the reason he was endorsed by the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association.
In addition, a focus on water and road infrastructure will require leadership to ensure Lakeville is on the leading edge of responsible development.
