Dear friends, residents of Brooklyn Park!
Vote for me and use your chance to clean Brooklyn Park of crime, to stop growth of taxes on our
homes, to clean parks of trash and drug trafficking.
I remember what you reported to me and what I documented listening to you: cars stolen from your
driveways and garages, homes and business offices broken in, cars broken in and tools and
equipment stolen, bicycles stolen from garage racks, damaged fences, bad work of the Police and
Code Enforcement and Public Health Department, trash and drug traffic in the parks, absence of
lights in the parks. And I remember how you approved of my initiative to introduce a new city rule
obligating landlords to do criminal background checks of their prospective renters and submitting it
to the city, which may become the key point for real reduction of crime in our city.
I spoke to thousands of households in Brooklyn Park since my first election campaign in 2014 up to
present. I remember your wry smiles and laughs when I showed to you distributed by city
employees banner, stating that “92% proud to live in Brooklyn Park” and that the city has “lowest
crime rate in 30 years.” I remember your statements: "it isn't true, crime is growing in the city, we
don't belong to this 92%, we try to hide, when asked, that we live in Brooklyn Park, because of its
I remember your questions if I knew the nickname of Brooklyn Park, which is called "Crooklyn park"
by people from the neighboring cities.
I want to change this. I want Brooklyn Park to get positive image of the city safe to live and to have

On March 16, 2021 Mayoral
Candidates Forum was held in
Brooklyn Park City Hall. All 7
candidates took part in the Forum.
Listen to Yelena Kurdyumova's
statements at the Forum which
clearly outline her agenda aimed at
making Brooklyn Park better place to
live and work.
In a week, on March 23, 2021, Yelena,
among 5 candidates out of 7, took part in
Candidate Forum organized by Beyond
Media Solutions and Mshale newspaper.
Watch the Forum on Facebook.
Agendas of all seven candidates
participating in special election for Mayor
of Brooklyn Park in 2021 look alike.
However, only Yelena S. Kurdyumova
realizes the importance of Marihuana
Legalization Bill initiated by Minnesota
House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler. This
bill aimed to expand legal products will
create rules for micro-businesses and
craft market in the city.
The bill will expunge most convictions related to marijuana automatically, provide assistance and
training to small businesses, require testing and labeling for products, restrict dosage size, prevent
access by too young people, let people grow limited amounts at home.
During the candidate forum on March 23, 2021, held by Beyond Media Solutions and Mshale,
Yelena said that Marijuana Legalization Bill will open new legal opportunities for Brooklyn Park small
businesses, marijuana dispensaries.
Brooklyn Park residents won’t have to go to other states like South Dakota to buy cannabis but will
buy locally and leave their money in the city where they live. Legal marijuana businesses will pay
taxes, and Brooklyn Park budget will get better money flow.
The budget will grow without increasing property taxes for homeowners. For too long the
legislature has been blind to the effects which marijuana prohibition had on many of our communities
New smart bill will address inequities in our criminal justice system, address the harms caused by
cannabis, ensure better outcomes for small businesses and our community overall.
As Mayor Yelena will support small businesses engaged in growing marijuana or synthesizing
cannabinoids (THC and CBD), production of oil, different ointments, candy, smoking mixtures, and
selling these marijuana-based products.
