Join me in building a city that works - for all of us. 

I am humbled and honored to have been selected by the residents of my hometown to become the 46th mayor of Saint Paul.

As a child who grew up in our city’s parks, rec centers, libraries and public schools, I am excited to be your teammate in the work ahead.

Let's move forward, together and build a Saint Paul that works for all of us. 

- Mayor Melvin Carter
