Hello, My name is Abdi Abdulle. I am a father, husband, brother, and educator. I believe in Lakeville and its potential to be a more welcoming place to people from all backgrounds. People who share a common vision for a vibrant community.
I want to be part of the change that comes to this wonderful city. To me, community means endless possibilities for safety, housing and infrastructure, a strong school system, excellent public services, safe streets, and neighbors who cherish and help each other. A community where families get together, and children play. A community that finds together what they have in common with commitment and courage.
I was born in Somalia, East Africa Country. Early in my childhood, I was at one of the largest refugee camps in the world, the Dadaab Refugee complex. In the year 2000, I came to Minnesota, the land of ten thousand lakes which I now call home. I lived in Minneapolis for more than two decades. When George Floyd was killed, I moved out of the city of Minneapolis because I wanted a safe place for my family. I moved my family to Lakeville because I trust the city. Today, I call Lakeville home, and because I care about you and our wonderful community, I would like to see the City of Lakeville continue to be a safe place for every resident.
