Maple Grove Voters Stick with Incumbents for City Council, Mayor
Maple Grove residents voted in the 2018 midterms to keep things as they were, re-electing candidates who had previously served.
Maple Grove Mayor Mark Steffenson will retain his seat after a victory against challenger P.J. Agness.
Steffenson’s platform has focused primarily on development and transportation, including the Highway 610 completion project and finishing the final quadrant of the Arbor Lakes development. Agness campaigned for the development of a ward system in Maple Grove and promised to allow citizens to have a voice while their city grows.
Steffenson won the race with nearly 80 percent of the vote.
Longtime Maple Grove City Council members Karen Jaeger and Phil Leith were re-elected over challengers Corinna Jayasuriya and Ray Emry, with 19-year council veteran Jaeger receiving 36 percent of the votes and 12-year member Leith receiving nearly 30 percent.
