In Running To Make A Difference, Leonard Levine reveals what brought this grandson of Russian and Polish immigrants from modest beginnings on the Lower West Side of St. Paul to impressive achievements in public service and in business. A record-breaking track star in college, and an award-winning high school teacher and coach, Levine was drawn into a career in city and state government that was marked by a determined and ongoing fight for the underdog. Inspired by his father’s outgoing personality and his mother’s kindliness, along with his own genuine respect for people from all walks of life, Levine developed a reputation for his ability to find consensus among the most contentious of forces. His inside view of his campaigns and goals demonstrates that he is a natural builder of bridges. Regardless of the role in life, Leonard Levine’s profound gratitude and deep love for his family shines above all else.


Leonard Levine is president of Leonard W. Levine & Associates, Inc., an international consulting firm that represents the private sector in its dealings with government and business.
