Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It has been the privilege of a lifetime to represent many of you in the state Senate in St. Paul. I am very excited to meet those of you who are new constituents redistricted into Senate District 14. As a candidate I offer you a proven record of bring people together – working across the aisle – to solve real problems and make a difference in people’s lives.
Our district includes all of Dodge County, parts of the city of Rochester, and parts of Olmsted County, including Byron, Stewartville, all of Kalmar, Rochester, Salem, Rock Dell, and High Forest Townships, and parts of Cascade and Marion Townships.
I have been driven by the belief that government must be responsive, as efficient as possible, and effective. I hope you will review my record and history of active community engagement and proven leadership.
I have consistently fought to advance educational opportunity by delivering historic school funding and reforms. I have brought people together to reduce taxes, fight inflation, improve access to affordable healthcare, champion community safety, support funding for safe roads and bridges, and to protect our environment.
I am a committed public servant and will continue to work hard for the people I represent. I look forward to meeting you, hearing your concerns, and getting your input on how to make our district and state the best place to live. I hope to earn your support!
Strong. Fair. Working for You.
