Mayor of Minnetonka, Wiersum, Elected League of Minnesota Cities President for 2020-2021

(June 26, 2020 – St. Paul, Minn.) Brad Wiersum, mayor of Minnetonka, was elected on June 25 to be president of the League of Minnesota Cities for 2020-2021. Voting was held during the Annual Business Meeting, attended virtually by city officials from across the state.

The Board of Directors is responsible for leading the statewide organization in a way that is strategic, responsible, and representative of all cities’ interests.

“COVID-19 and the dual issues of racism and injustice will affect all Minnesota cities, to varying degrees, in the coming year and demand the attention of leaders,” said Wiersum. “I hope to be a resource to the League and to our member cities as we all grapple with these and other challenges over the next year.”

Wiersum was elected mayor of Minnetonka in 2017 following 15 years as a city councilmember. He is CEO and owner of a business consulting group.
