About Sami Cisman

My name is Samsam Cisman, my friends call me Sami and I am the founder of Cisman Communications/PR, a Twin Cities based public relations firm that helps build brands for a wide variety of industries. I am seeking to run for State Representative seat in the Edina/ Bloomington district which I am proud to call home. I am running because I am concerned by the challenges we face today in our state and believe that I can no longer sit on the sidelines! As a young woman born in America to immigrants, I understand two diverse cultures and believe in and appreciate the freedoms and opportunities we have in the United States.


My parents moved here from Somalia in the 1990’s, during the beginning of the Civil War of Somalia when they were in their early 20’s. My father and my mother settled in the Twin Cities, raising eight children. As the second oldest child, I watched my father work and achieve the American dream by building a successful transportation business.
