It was an honor to represent you during the highly productive 2013-2014 legislative session. When you sent me to Capitol in January of 2013, Minnesota faced a $627 million budget deficit and nearly $1 billion in debt to our schools. I worked hard on your behalf, and with the help of many, we corrected course and put Minnesota back on the right track. We’re investing in hardworking families and middle-class minnesotans by:

  • Paying back the money borrowed from our schools;
  • Making historic investments in education, from early childhood through college;
  • Growing our economy and creating more jobs;
  • Helping turn our budget deficit into a surplus

I also fought for our communities and delivered:

  • $5 million in state bonding dollars for a new terminal at the Range Regional Airport, and additional funding for improved learning space at Hibbing Community College;
  • Increased funding for our local nursing homes and long-term care givers;
  • New refunds for property tax payers including more than 11,500 homeowners and nearly 14,000 renters in St. Louis and Itasca Counties.

We’ve made significant progress, but there is a lot more work to do to create good jobs and grow our economy. I respectfully ask for your support in the coming election so we can keep Minnesota moving forward.

Generations. Working Together.
