Hello, my name is John Shuman, I was born in Devil's Lake, North Dakota but was raised on a farm just outside of Birchdale, Minnesota. I graduated from Lake of the Woods High School and went on to attend the University of St. Thomas where I graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice.
After I graduated from the University of St Thomas, I joined the U.S. Secret Service where I served in a variety of areas –as a Minneapolis Field officer, on Vice President Cheney's Detail, an Instructor for the U.S. Secret Service Academy, and worked in the Chicago Field Office. I also supported several United States Presidents including President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.
I married Terri Shuman in 2001 and we later adopted our son Jonah from Colombia, South America while we were living in Chicago, IL. We moved back to Minnesota in 2013 into our current home at 3 Island View Lane in North Oaks. Terri grew up in North Oaks just a few blocks from where we now live at 2 Aspen Lane. She works as an HR manager at a local medical device company and our son, Jonah, attends St. Odilia's and is currently in 6th grade.
I was the Director of Corporate Security for Target Corporations in 2013 and was a Chief Security Officer for U.S. Bank in 2017. I am now the Founder and Business Owner of Shuman Security Consulting where we offer consulting services and security support to HNW individuals, families, and corporations. I am also a current board member of the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department Foundation. My experience matters to the future safety of North Oaks.
I believe the City Council plays an important role in ensuring North Oaks remains a safe place to live and raise a family. A strong community includes healthy natural resources, a welcoming attitude toward residents, positive leadership, and allowing residents to express their opinions, share their experiences, and be engaged in the decision-making process. I also believe that people should be able to walk through the doors of city hall and be met by an open-minded, impartial city council that looks for ways to help our citizens of North Oaks.
I am running for North Oaks City Council to make a difference in Safety & Security, Safeguarding our Natural Resources, and to provide Strong Leadership for this community. I am a forward-thinking, positive candidate that believes collaboration, diversity of thought, and transparent action are key to ensuring credibility & support from the residents of North Oaks.
