Brooklyn Center voters decided to send incumbents Marquita Butler and Kris Lawrence-Anderson back to the city council.
Incumbent Marquita Butler won her second term on the city council, receiving 5,111 votes.

She also advocated for a diversity in housing stock and promoting community engagement.

In a statement to CCX News, she said her “only agenda is what is best for Brooklyn Center.” In office for another term, she hoped to see a sensible and safe solution to Hwy 252 with the least resident impact, a variety of housing and retail in the city, and more development that would lessen the property tax burden on homeowners.
