Dear Neighbors,

I’m Mary Kunesh-Podein and I’m running to be your next State Representative from Minnesota House District 41B.

Columbia Heights, Hilltop, Saint Anthony and New Brighton are great cities for Minnesotans to raise a family – we have excellent public schools, wonderful parks, vibrant neighborhoods, and a growing local economy.  I’m running to ensure we continue investing in our children and families so that our region stays a place where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

As your State Representative, I will be a champion in Saint Paul for our communities. I will fight for policies that build on what we know works by investing in our public schools, strengthening family economic security, and advancing environmental sustainability.

It’s important to me that I learn ways you think we should be investing in our community and earn your support to carry those ideas forward as the State Representative from 41B. If we haven’t had a chance to connect yet, please call me at 651-247-4642 or email 

I hope to earn your support!
