Peter McLaughlin

Executive Director

LISC Twin Cities




After serving nearly three decades on the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners, Peter McLaughlin needs no introduction. But in 2018, McLaughlin lost his reelection bid to newcomer Angela Conley. You’d think a guy nearing 70 might be interested in retirement—not McLaughlin. In May, he was tapped to lead LISC Twin Cities. The Local Initiatives Support Coalition is a national nonprofit that helps provide funding for revitalizing communities and expanding economic opportunities. That’s in tune with much of the work McLaughlin supported on the county board. He sees the big picture but pays close attention to the details needed to realize the vision.
