Beckmann succeeds Paul Williams (MA '85), who left April 11 to serve as Executive Director at Project for Pride in Living. Beckmann, the current Vice President of Programs and Services at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, will assume her duties as Deputy Mayor on May 19.

"Steady management is crucial in the Deputy Mayor role, and I am confident Kristin will continue the strong leadership of former Deputy Mayors Paul Williams and Ann Mulholland," Mayor Coleman said. "Kristin's extensive experience in helping to reduce disparities in our community is central to our mission of creating equal opportunity for all in Saint Paul, and I am thrilled to appoint a Deputy Mayor who will wake up every morning thinking about closing the achievement gap--as well as filling the pot holes."
