A proven leader, a trusted legal advisor and an Eden Prairie business owner
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN – Ryan Miske, a partner at Minnesota’s largest law firm and an Eden Prairie business owner, today announced his candidacy for Eden Prairie City Council.
In announcing his candidacy, Miske noted the extraordinary challenges the city council will face as our community battles and rebuilds from the COVID-19 pandemic. “As a trusted legal advisor to many small and large businesses throughout Minnesota, my background helping them navigate challenging times and solve complex issues is the type of experience I’ll put to work for the people of Eden Prairie as our city builds a new normal in the aftermath of the coronavirus,” said Miske.
As a local business owner, Miske is currently in the process of remodeling 7500 Office Ridge Circle, a 20-plus year-old office building near the intersection of 494 and Valley View Road. Miske envisions 7500 Office Ridge Circle as a catalyst to attract new businesses and high-paying jobs to Eden Prairie and to nurture the next generation of businesses that will emerge from our community. “My vision with this project is to encourage Eden Prairie’s legacy of entrepreneurial success by reserving a portion of the building for entrepreneurs and small business owners and providing them with an ecosystem and support services that will allow them and their ideas, products, and services to flourish,” Miske stated.
A partner in the Corporate Group at Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, Miske has been named to Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list and been repeatedly recognized on the list of Minnesota Super Lawyers. An Eagle Scout, Miske earned the Gold Congressional Award, the highest honor the U.S. Congress confers on youth for distinguished public service and personal development initiatives. He serves as a member of the executive board of the Northern Star Council – Boy Scouts of America, which serves communities across central Minnesota and western Wisconsin. He holds a B.A. from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, and a J.D. and M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota. While attending the University of Minnesota Law School, he served as the editor-in-chief of Minnesota Law Review.
“The future holds so much promise for Eden Prairie. Working together we can navigate the COVID-19 crisis and rebuild our community to be an even greater place to live, work, and raise a family than it already is. I hope to earn your support to serve our community on the Eden Prairie City Council,” Miske observed in announcing his campaign for the city council.
