In October 2009, the Jordan Area Community Council elected Vladimir Monroe to be the next CHAIR of the 45 year old community council serving the Jordan Neighborhood and its 5,000 constituents. The previous year's Chair and current Vice-Chair, Michael "Kip" Browne, nominated Mr. Monroe for the position. In doing so he said, "Vladimir displays the level of integrity and leadership this organization needs to thrive during challenging economic times. He has my full confidence and support to take on the duties and responsibilities of the Office of the Chair."
Vladimir, an emerging community leader, was appointed by Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak to serve on the Minneapolis Commission on Civil Rights, a position he held for several years before leaving to become Minneapolis City Council Member Don Samuels' 2009 Re-election Campaign Manager. "I'm honored to have the trust of my neighbors and will work hard to continue the good work and progress we have made in the past year," the honorably discharge Navy vet stated. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science (cum laude) from Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida.
Congratulations to our new Chair!
