Proudly representing Lake Elmo
In 2012, I was elected to represent the people of Forest Lake, Stillwater, and the surrounding St. Croix Valley in the Minnesota Senate. In that time, we have made a real difference. I’m proud of our accomplishments together, including passing landmark protections for elderly and vulnerable Minnesotans, making record investments in area schools, cutting your taxes, and navigating a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.
Now, there is more work to do, and I am asking for your support to continue representing our communities in the Minnesota Senate. I have lived in this district for more than 30 years. I raised my family here, my kids went to school here, and now my grandkids are growing up here. As we confront our state’s many challenges ahead, I will continuing bringing my leadership and experience to the Capitol every day as I work to get things done for you.
Fighting for seniors
I spearheaded “landmark” legislation that provides protections for Minnesotans living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Minnesota’s population is rapidly aging—and our seniors need someone to fight for them. I’m proud to fight for our seniors and most vulnerable.
Investing in our communities
We’re fortunate to live in an area with great schools, supportive businesses, and incredible natural beauty. That’s why I’m fighting so hard to make sure we’re investing in these valuable assets—and actively working together to make them even better. I’m so proud to support our schools, our law enforcement, our small businesses, and the many other entities that make our communities so great.
Protecting your budget
Minnesota is among the highest-taxed states in the nation—but I’m working to change that. I’ve succeeded in working across party lines to deliver cuts to the income tax and Social Security tax, but we have more work to do. When our cost of living is lower, we can invest more in our local economies.
I need your help.
It’s an honor to represent Forest Lake, Stillwater, and the surrounding St. Croix Valley in the Minnesota Senate. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished—but there is still work left to do.
That’s why I’m asking for your help. Together, we can continue making a difference. Can I count on your support today?
