MINNEAPOLIS, MN – February 3, 2012. Jonathan W.J. Armour
, a shareholder at Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., has just been elected to serve a two-year term on the Board of Directors of Nice Ride Minnesota. Nice Ride Minnesota is a non-profit created to bring public bike sharing to the Twin Cities.
The non-profit’s mission is to enhance the quality of urban life by providing a convenient, easy-to-use bike sharing program, providing both residents and visitors with a healthy and fun way to get around town. Nice Ride Minnesota was formed through the Twin Cities Bike Share Project, an initiative started by Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and the City of Lakes Nordic Ski Foundation in July 2008. Their top priority for 2012 is expansion into downtown St. Paul, which will allow them to serve both of the downtowns as well as the neighborhoods along primary transportation corridors between the two cities.
Jon, an avid cyclist, is excited to be a part of a local non-profit that is focused on helping to create a more vibrant city through avoiding congestion, promoting a healthier lifestyle and reducing our collective carbon footprint. He is also serving on their Sponsorship Committee and is working to secure new sponsorships to fuel their growth into St. Paul.
Jon’s law practice at Winthrop & Weinstine centers around commercial financing, with a heavy concentration in construction and real estate lending. He is involved in all aspects of the lending process and has represented and advised businesses, developers, and institutional clients on a variety of commercial financing matters varying in both size and complexity.
