I’m Paula Mielke
and I’m Running for Falcon Heights City Council
I love Falcon Heights, and being engaged energizes me. I like learning and researching, exploring and bringing forth new ideas, and following how similar cities respond to challenges. I’ve been involved with our community in numerous ways over the years. You also could say I’ve been around the block – literally.
Bruce and I bought our first home in Falcon Heights in 1990. The house had been foreclosed on and was an eyesore. We chatted with everyone who walked by, telling them our plans and dreams for the house. That’s where we lived when our sons Luke and Isaac were born and I started my solo public relations practice. In 1998, our neighbors asked if we would like to buy their house. We moved across the street so I could have a home office rather than a desk in our bedroom. In 2019, we decided to downsize and moved to a smaller home two blocks south.
“Paula is a thoughtful, hardworking leader who is deeply committed to the well-being of all. I appreciate her ability to work with others to find helpful solutions to challenges facing the community.”
