About Tim

A lifelong resident of the Eastside, Tim Mahoney is proud to have represented his community in the Minnesota House of Representatives since first being elected in 1998. In that time he has risen to become Chair of the House Jobs and Economic Development Finance and Policy Committee and dedicated much of legislative work to building a strong local economy on the Eastside. A 1971 graduate of Harding High School, Tim attended St. Paul College before becoming a construction pipe fitter. Although he recently retired, Tim remains an active member of St Paul Pipefitter local 455 and a strong supporter of the building trades. Tim has two adult daughters and lives with his wife in the Payne Phalen neighborhood.

Legislative Accomplishments

During his time in the legislature Tim has been a vocal advocate for the Eastside. He has championed or led on broad variety of issues including revitalization of the Phalen Corridor, the construction of the Bureau of the Criminal Apprehension facility, and redevelopment of the 3M site. Tim has also worked to secure funds for construction projects at the John A. Johnson Elementary school as well as the Metro State campus. These investments have brought hundreds of jobs to the Eastside.

Tim's Vision Going Forward

Tim believes the Eastside needs to continue with the revitalization of 7th Street, and Arcade Street as well as other areas of the Greater Eastside. He continues to be focused on cleaning up the numerous polluted industrial sites so they can be redeveloped and returned to the tax rolls. Tim knows that by focusing on these sites—as we did with the 3M site—the Eastside can continue to bring new jobs to our neighborhood.

Tim also believes that we must improve the Eastside's roads and public transportation system by not only investing in the immediate construction projects we need, but also in the planning of long-term projects like light rail or street cars. Tim knows that these projects need significant community input during the planning process to that our public dollars are spent in the best interests of all residents.
