We all want the same thing, a safe and vibrant city that is open to its citizens and uses it resources wisely.
Hi, I am Erik Skogquist and my wife and I grew up in Anoka, invested in Anoka and are here to stay.

Growing Up in Anoka
My wife and I have lived in Anoka our whole lives which has shaped who we are. After I earned Political Science and Urban Studies degrees from the University of Minnesota, I decided Anoka was where I wanted to spend my life and raise a family.
In 2014, my wife and I jumped at the chance to save an historic 1887 home from demolition. We had it moved and have spent a few years restoring it and raising our growing family there.

Giving Back to Anoka
Amanda and I are active volunteers at Lincoln Elementary, our Anoka Church, Cub Scouts, and lots of civic and kid activities.
