Bloomington City Clerk Christina Scipioni was interested in local government long before she worked for a municipality. As a child, she and her family gathered around the TV to watch Eagan city council meetings. She was fascinated by the process of local government and the people involved in making an impact on a local level.
“I’m a local government nerd so I’ve always liked watching the process play out,” she said. “Now I get to be a part of it.”
Christina’s first day at the City was April 12. Since then, she’s been hard at work preparing for the first election in Bloomington that uses ranked choice voting. Before starting with the City, she served as Eagan’s city clerk for 10 years.
“One thing that drew me to Bloomington is the wide variety of services the City Clerk’s Office offers here. It’s also a very exciting time, with our first election with ranked choice voting coming up,” she said.
