Volunteer Spotlight: City of Roseville Commissioner Ed Hodder

Volunteer Spotlight - City of Roseville Commissioner Ed Hodder

Ed Hodder is no stranger to public service and is one of few residents to have served on two separate Roseville Commissions.

Hodder served as a Finance Commissioner from 2014 to 2020, and returned in March of 2022 to serve as a commissioner on the city’s Public Works, Environment, and Transportation Commission, more commonly referred to as the PWET Commission.  

Ed has lived in Roseville for 21 years and has served as a Senior Economic Analyst/Principal Planner for the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) since 2000. Ed has participated in several city discussions surrounding race, policing, school facilities planning, and community and is also a member of the Community Advisory Group (CAG) for the Envision Roseville project.

What made you return to serve as a Commissioner on PWET? 

I heard about the commission openings in the City Newsletter and really enjoyed my time as a Finance Commissioner. I’ve always had a strong interest in public works and wanted to better understand how our Public Works Department functions with federal, state, county, regional, and other services. PWET seemed like a great opportunity for me to continue to contribute to our community. 

What would you say to someone who is considering to join a Roseville Commission?  

Just do it. Jump in! The commitment is fairly minimal with monthly meetings and some light homework. I’ve met some great people through volunteering as a commissioner and I feel more connected to my city when I’m actively engaged in some way. Cities, nonprofits, and other public organizations rely on volunteers and public input to get things done. 

Thank you for your continued service to the City of Roseville, Commissioner Hodder!
