Carter, who is now the YEO Network's Minnesota state director, became involved in politics after his brother was turned away from a Florida polling place in the 2000 elections.

In 2009, Carter founded the Frogtown/Summit-University Community Investment Campus, a partnership between city, county, school, and community leaders to support high quality education outcomes for all children. Another priority of his is transit equity: he's working to create opportunities for local businesses and affordable housing along a planned light rail line in St. Paul.

Melvin Carter
Council Member Melvin Carter (St. Paul, Minnesota)
Melvin W. Carter III represents Ward 1 on the Saint Paul City Council. A native of Minnesota, he attended Florida A&M University and became engaged in electoral politics after his brother was turned away from a Florida polling precinct during Election 2000.
Council Member Carter is passionate about building the progressive movement and helping others engage. He serves as Minnesota State Director for the YEO Network, and has trained organizers and candidates in 26 states with several national organizations, including Wellstone Action, People For the American Way Foundation, and Progressive Majority. Back home, he can often be found hosting unique events, such as "Candidate Karoake," an annual candidate forum where participants have to sing before they can speak!
Inspired by the work of the Harlem Children's Zone, Carter in 2009 created the Frogtown/Summit-University Community Investment Campus, a partnership between city, county, school, and community leaders to support high quality education outcomes for all children. Just one year later, this initiative won a highly competitive federal Promise Neighborhoods Grant to continue that work on a larger scale.
An advocate for transit equity, Carter has fought tirelessly for residents and businesses along Saint Paul's planned Central Corridor Light Rail Line. As part of a broad community movement, Carter has worked to secure additional stations, support local businesses through construction, and create employment training and affordable housing opportunities along the Corridor.
Carter holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from Florida A&M University, and has studied at the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. His wife, Alecia, is an occupational therapist in the Saint Paul Public Schools, and they have two daughters, Maylena (5) and Naomi (3).
