About Johnathon McClellan...

I began public service as a volunteer for various organizations in Bloomington, Richfield, and Minneapolis. I continue to serve my community and have over 15 years of service and experience in making communities stronger, and safer. I have a passion for public service and will continue to give my time to make our city the best it can be.


My vision for our city:


My vision for our City is an engaged diverse community, a community which leads by example, and a City that values all types of early childhood, and postsecondary education. A community where kids don't have to worry about being hungry or homeless, where families can make enough to afford a modest home, food on the table, and the ability to provide for their family. A City where community policing is the norm; where the City truly serves and represents all residents no matter age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or economic status.

I was always taught that achievement requires hard work and dedication. If you fall, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and never give up. Stand up for the people who can't stand up for themselves. These are lessons I take with me in all walks of life.


I am a family man, I have 4 children, 2 boys, and 2 girls. I own my home here in Bloomington. My children attend school here in Bloomington as well. I am a hunter, I love fishing, and the outdoors, I am a drone pilot and enjoy aerial photography and good BBQ.


As your council member, I want to strengthen the City of Bloomington and the families, and communities within it. I believe Family-oriented policies, a strong school system, public safety, trust, holding true to the oath of office, and the community are the keys to success in this area. I have pursued this agenda through the Human Rights Commissions, Community engagement, and through the many friends, I've met over the years who make policy decisions throughout the State.  I look forward to doing more as your elected voice.


If you have more questions regarding my background, please contact me or call the campaign office at 612-990-6900. I've always got an open ear for my constituents.
