Beneke announces School Board candidacy

Jim Beneke has announced his candidacy for the St. Louis Park School Board.
He and his wife, Linda, have been 22-year members of the community and have three children who are or have been enrolled in the school district. Beneke has been an active volunteer in the community and the schools, with a wide breadth of leadership roles.

“I have greatly appreciated the St. Louis Park community and its public school system,” Beneke said. “I have especially appreciated the diversity that exists in St. Louis Park and the commitment the community has to the well-being of every child.”

As for his reasons for running, Beneke said, “I believe a vital public education system is essential for a society that strives for universal equity and opportunity. I want to build on the success of the St. Louis Park schools and help it lead the way until the day success in school is not predictable from demographic data.”

Currently, Beneke serves on the Community Education Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Committee. He also served recently on a Strategic Planning Action Team. He has also been a soccer coach, a Lego League coach and a YMCA Voyager program leader.
