It is my great honor to represent the Mighty 64 in the Minnesota House. Thank you for your support and confidence. I’m proud to represent our community and to work with you towards a brighter future for Minnesota.
Each day I work to fulfill my promise to listen to Minnesotans, to diagnose the problems we face and act to solve them. Working with you and with my colleagues, we will move Minnesota forward.
In the 2013-2014 session we made great progress in expanding the middle class, paying back our schools, and ensuring equality for all. Despite our progress, there were still challenges ahead of us and with a growing economy and a modest surplus, I expected progress on our transportation infrastructure and a durable commitment to early learning. Instead, we left the 2015 session with nearly a billion dollars on the bottom line and halfhearted promises to try harder next year.
That’s not how we build our future. But rather than grumble, I am going to fight. I need your help. If we each do our small part, I am confident we can create economic opportunity and security for all Minnesotans.
