Wendy Wulff

Metropolitan Council Member, District 16

Wendy Wulff was originally appointed to the Metropolitan Council by Gov. Tim Pawlenty in April 2009. Gov. Mark Dayton reappointed Wulff in 2011 and in 2015. She lives in Lakeville, and represents District 16, which encompasses the southern portion of Dakota County and part of Scott County.

Wulff, a resident of Lakeville, has an extensive background in local government and regional issues. She served on the Lakeville City Council from 2003 to 2009, following a seven-year stint on the Lakeville Planning Commission, including one as its chair.

She also served on the Metropolitan Council’s Land Use Advisory Committee, the region’s Transportation Advisory Board, the League of Minnesota Cities Board, the Legislative Commission on Metropolitan Government, and the Minnesota Women in City Government Board.

“Regional services will continue to be challenged by the same issues that are impacting the overall economy,” Wulff said. “We will need to continue to find ways to balance needs with funding, while working collaboratively to maximize the opportunity for economic recovery.”

As a Council member, Wulff serves as vice chair of the Environment Committee and as a member of the Community Development Committee.

Among her reasons for seeking reappointment, Wulff cites her interest in continuing to build on the work of the previous Council in collaborating with cities and counties on the Council’s core functions. “I am also looking forward to completing the work that we began on transitway guidelines and continuing to advance energy efficiency in our wastewater services.”

Wulff holds a bachelor of science degree in mathematics from the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology. She is married and has three sons.
