Today, Brooklyn Park is launching a new podcast called “We are Brooklyn Park” hosted by City Manager Jay Stroebel. Guests include residents, employees, business owners and other community leaders in Brooklyn Park. One new episode will be released every day this week. The regular schedule will be every other Monday until December with a second season set to begin in 2021.
“There is a lot to explore in Brooklyn Park. From our restaurants, world-class golf, thriving business community, art, culture, educational opportunities and much more,” said Stroebel. “We want residents and our neighbors across the metro to know what’s happening and what we have to offer in Brooklyn Park.”
Podcast guests discuss their efforts to help the community as well as current events like COVID-19 that have impacted their work or the city. The goal for every episode is to have meaningful conversations that give insight and inspires others.
The first guest is Dr. Rolando Garcia, the new president of North Hennepin Community College, where he talks about promoting diversity and championing underserved students through visionary and transformational leadership.
