Meet Adam Faitek

I have lived in Ward 13 for the past seven years where I reside with my wife, Molly, and our dog, Buddy. My professional experience is in the nonprofit sector leading fundraising and volunteer recruitment efforts that help those facing food insecurity and poverty. These efforts have contributed to putting millions of dollars back into the pockets of low-income families and have provided alternatives to families using wealth-stripping financial products.

At the neighborhood level, I have served for the past six years on the East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association as a board member and five years as chair. I have lead efforts to bring new businesses to the neighborhood, started a neighorhood-based annual block party that brought hundreds of neighbors together, and secured increased funding for our community school and recreation center.

I have spent my life working to improve the lives of working families in our City. I want to be your City Councilmember to collaboratively expand the impact of this work for our Ward and City. With your support, I believe that my collaborative style, experience, and skills can bring equitable policies that truly make Minneapolis a place for everyone.
