Mayor Hodges’ Nominations for City Attorney and Assessor Confirmed
March 7, 2014 (MINNEAPOLIS) — By wide margins, the Minneapolis City Council today confirmed Mayor Betsy Hodges’ nominations of incumbents Susan Segal for City Attorney and Patrick Todd for Assessor of the City of Minneapolis.
“Patrick Todd and Susan Segal are innovative, dedicated and respected public servants who put the best interests of Minneapolis first,” Mayor Hodges said. “I am proud to continue working with them, and always trust and respect their advice. I am pleased that the City Council reconfirmed them.”
Patrick Todd has worked in the City Assessor’s office for 23 years, holding several professional positions before being appointed Minneapolis City Assessor in July 2005. He has 28 years’ experience in the real estate market, ranging from sales to property appraisals. He leads a department of 36 staff members and oversees the City’s real estate assessment division.
Susan Segal was first appointed as City Attorney in February 2008. Segal has received wide recognition for her innovative work in combatting domestic violence, sex trafficking and homelessness, and in reforming the City’s closed-pension system, which saved City taxpayers $20 million in 2012. She has received the 2013 Myra Bradwell Award from Minnesota Women Lawyers and the 2013 Minnesota Lawyer Attorney of the Year award. The City Attorney’s Office prosecutes all adult misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor crime in the City of Minneapolis and handles all civil legal work and litigation for the City and its boards and commissions.
