A Message to the Voters from Carla Nelson
Our form of government, a constitutional republic, is founded on democratic representation.
I have been humbled and honored to represent the people of Southeast Minnesota the last two years in the Minnesota Senate.
Today is the day you elect whom you want to represent you in 2013 and beyond.
If you choose me as your Senator for another term in office, I make a solemn oath that I will continue to do my level best on your behalf. I will go forth with the understanding that I was elected to serve all the people, whether they voted for me, or not. When I vote on the budget, I will keep in the forefront of my mind that it is your money the Legislature is spending. Jobs will be my top priority. This requires making Minnesota a more job friendly state through lower taxes and smarter regulation. We must make sure our students are well prepared to succeed and fill these jobs. We must keep our agricultural industry thriving and competitive. And we must keep the Rochester area the standard-bearer in medical advances and healthcare delivery.
Now I humbly ask for your vote today.
