Meet Jen Fox!


Fox holds a Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Leadership from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, and a Bachelor’s Degree from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter. 


As a lifelong Hastings resident with decades of involvement in the community, a local business owner, and current City Council member, Fox and her own small business have personally felt the outcomes of legislative decisions made in recent years. She is running to bring a voice from the district to St. Paul on behalf of business owners, local governments and all residents in District 41. Fox is committed to enhancing stakeholder engagement as decisions are made that impact the district. 


Prior to her election to city council, Fox served as a commissioner on the Hastings Economic Development and Redevelopment Authority (HEDRA), where she was appointed Treasurer by her fellow board members. HEDRA guides the development and implementation of the city's economic and redevelopment strategies. The seven-member board is appointed by the Hastings City Council and consists of five citizens.


Professionally, Fox is part owner of Spiral Brewery, a popular business on Second Street in downtown Hastings where she runs the Sales and Distribution Division. She has also worked for the State of Minnesota as the Director of Consumer Outreach and Community Relations for the Minnesota Department of Commerce, and in several communications roles at the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. 


“The issues that our district’s communities face today are greater than what we, as local governments, can face alone. We need support at the state capitol for bonding, infrastructure, and clean water now more than ever."
