I had the privilege of working with Bob Stewart as an Edina city council member and also as a member of the Edina community.
I can attest to Bob’s abilities to work on both sides of the aisle through thorough analysis of any given situation and provide solutions for moving forward that benefit Edina constituents and the city.
