Meet Kristy

Kristy Janigo
My name is Kristy Janigo, and I am a US Army National Guard veteran seeking to continue to serve. Professionally, I am a product designer with my whole career working for Minnesota-based companies. I earned a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota’s College of Design. My husband and I bought our town home in Maple Grove in 2016.

Owning a home inspired me to become involved and learn more about our city. In 2017, I completed the Citizens Police Academy course and experienced first-hand how the Maple Grove Police Department operates. I served for two years on the Maple Grove Arbor Committee, advising city leadership on preservation of the urban trees and nature areas throughout ongoing development. I am a member of Maple Grove Lutheran Church and occasionally serve as assisting minster. I am running for Maple Grove City Council because I love this city, and I care deeply about ensuring a high quality of life for all our neighbors.
