Christa Moseng has lived in Minnesota most of her life, and in Minneapolis for twelve years. She first moved to the Corcoran neighborhood in 2009, and has lived in the Midtown Phillips neighborhood since 2017. In 2012, Christa canvassed in Powderhorn, Phillips, Central, and Northeast Minneapolis to defeat the proposed state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Christa’s favorite summertime events are Open Streets and Powderhorn 24.
She spent some time in Iowa to get a B.A. from Grinnell, and to attend law school at the University of Iowa. During law school, she served as Senior Managing Editor of the Journal of Gender, Race & Justice. She earned her JD in 2008 and returned to Minnesota to begin a career as an attorney.
Christa’s legal career has been committed to public service, working as a judicial clerk for the Minnesota Court of Appeals and Hennepin County District Court, and as an attorney for the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission. Christa’s recent professional experience includes nearly a decade of analyzing and explaining—in plain language—utility ratemaking decisions, which involve often-complicated financial, budgetary, and accounting matters.
Christa’s perspective on the importance of public services and investment is informed by her experience of childhood poverty.
