For the past two years, I have been honored to represent you at the State Capitol. We have faced significant budget challenges together, and made serious choices. Your feedback and support has been key to the decisions I’ve made on each and every issue, and I have worked hard to represent the best interests of the people of our district.
Teaming with legislators of both parties, I’ve worked to protect Minnesota schools, nursing homes and hospitals, put our economy back on track, and responsibly resolve a daunting $3 billion budget shortfall. We passed two major jobs bills to put thousands of Minnesotans back on the job and level the playing field for Minnesota small businesses. We’ve also made the tough, but necessary, budget cuts, striving to protect jobs and the values that make Minnesota a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to represent you! I look forward to seeing more of you in the coming weeks.
