Biography

Commissioner Marion Greene represents Hennepin County’s Third District, and serves as Board Chair. District 3 includes much of Downtown Minneapolis, Southwest Minneapolis, and the entirety of the city of St. Louis Park. Marion was elected for her second term in 2018. At 2019’s first board convening she was unanimously elected Board Chair by her colleagues.

A former State Representative, Marion Greene was chief author of legislation to fully fund all-day kindergarten in Minnesota, and co-author of legislation to establish the Minnesota Health Exchange, now MNSure.

Marion leads on innovative local policies at Hennepin County that have immediate impact on the community, including funding for permanent staff to pursue and prevent sex trafficking of young people and to provide services to victims, a fund for county residents who are facing removal proceedings to access legal aid, and phase-out of Hennepin County carbon-emitting fleet vehicles to be replaced with electric vehicles. Looking to the future, Marion is focused on the Met Council’s successful completion of Southwest Light Rail, financial inclusion, justice reform, and continuing the shift towards being a carbon-neutral county.
