I have called our district home for over twenty years, and like my neighbors, I am not above putting in the hard work to get results.
I grew up in the rural areas of Hugo. My mom is a secretary at a trucking company and my dad is a local semi-truck driver. I have two siblings, one of which is my twin brother. We all graduated from the Forest Lake school district.
I live in Forest Lake with my Fiancé, Luke and our two dogs. He is an Apprentice Gas Fitter for Xcel Energy and has lived in the community his whole life.
I serve the community of Forest Lake as a City Councilmember and a member of the Rotary Club to build a shared future that we all have a say in.
Currently, as a licensed attorney, I am the first-ever Revisor of Statutes for the Non-Removable Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. I draft legislation and ensure all laws are up-to-date.
I am a proven and experienced leader, and I am committed to our community. I look forward to the work we can get done together!

IN THE PRESS
"In January, the 26-year-old legislative assistant and lawyer will become the youngest person, and certainly the youngest woman, to be sworn into the council. Valento will also now be one of four women representing the five-seat council, alongside Mayor Mara Bain, and Councilwomen Kathy Bystrom and Kelly Monson."
