Why De'Vonna is Running

“Our district deserves a leader who will actively listen to people’s ideas and concerns and act to address those issues.”

Reducing Disparities

De’Vonna believes equity should be an integral part of quality improvement efforts – from planning to design and implementation.

She is committed to overseeing current efforts focused on reducing disparities across the county.

“I believe that engaged and empowered people create healthier communities.”

~ De'Vonna

”Whether it be property taxes, workforce development, transportation, accessibility, or immigration concerns, I will listen and I will be an authentic voice for our district.”

~ De'Vonna

Real Affordable Housing

A fresh look at affordable housing and equitable funding is a priority for De’Vonna.

We live in a county where three out of four households with incomes below the poverty line struggle to pay their rent or mortgage.

New families, individuals entering the workforce, disenfranchised communities, seniors, and immigrants often dish out more than 30% on housing.

Senior citizens are not able to afford rising property taxes, repairs for older homes, and are unable to age in place. 

Workforce Development

For Hennepin County to have a competitive workforce it needs to reduce employment inequities and create innovative employment and training opportunities.

People need access to careers that provide pathways out of poverty.

This includes access to jobs and training programs that people can reach through public transportation.

“The formula doesn’t lie in the hands of the policy makers, it lies in the hands of the people.”

 

~ De'Vonna

“All community members should be encouraged to participate in solution oriented processes – that is what creates healthier communities.”

~ De'Vonna

Safe Neighborhoods

De’Vonna is committed to having authentic conversations with community members and police officers to ensure every resident feels safe in their community. 

We need to begin reaching our youth now because they are the future, we have to prepare them to take care of us and our communities. 

Read De’Vonna’s statement on Law Enforcement Reform.

Transportation

De’Vonna is committed to taking the lead on engaging community members to talk about the connection between public transportation, the environment, and equity. 

Public transportation is important to individuals and families who opt out of owning cars, or to those who simply can’t afford the expenses that having a car brings. 

It’s time to reimagine Bottineau. We need a leader on blue line expansion who is focused on helping communities along the line thrive.

As your commissioner, I will be a champion for a transportation system that provides community members with access to living-wage jobs, educational opportunities, and high-quality housing.

“When the people are in the room with decision-makers, the outcomes will favor the people.”

~ De'Vonna

Reducing health disparities is vital and can only occur with transparency and accountability from health systems.

In De’Vonna’s current role, the disparity reduction leadership team established the top three priorities for Hennepin, which include improving access, increasing healthy births, and empowering community to reduce chronic disease. 

Health care must be affordable, and it must be available to everyone who needs it. As a local government with the second largest budget in the state, Hennepin County must lead in supporting health care workers.
