Andrew K. Moller
Address: 11037 Branching Horn
Date Filed: 08-14-2018
Livelihood: Retired chief financial officer for Christopher & Banks Corp.
Family: Three nieces, three nephews and two grandnieces
Three main issues:
Work to lower property taxes. Moller said he planned to thoroughly review the city’s annual comprehensive financial report to identify the areas he sees as opportunities to reduce expenses.
2. Maintaining and upgrading infrastructure. Moller said he’s had personal experience with a storm sewer that collapsed in his backyard in 1987 and resulted in a significant amount of erosion. He added that preventive maintenance is a necessary city function.
3. Term limits for Eden Prairie elected officials. “Three four-year terms is enough for mayor and city council,” Moller said. “With term limits, I think it allows for more fresh perspectives and more citizen involvement.”
Why am I running?
Moller said he’s running because he believes he can make a difference “at a key inflection in Eden Prairie’s history.” He has 30 years of private-sector finance experience, including a decade as chief financial officer at Christopher & Banks. “We really need someone with financial experience on the City Council,” he said.
