ROCHESTER, MN – Senator Carla Nelson (R-Rochester) today announced she has earned endorsements from business and labor groups. The SMART Sheet Metal Workers’ Local #10 and the Minnesota Retailers IMPACT fund both will be supporting Sen. Nelson for the 2022 election.
“Having both union and business endorsements is a source of pride for me,” Sen. Nelson said. “We all want to grow Minnesota’s economy. I appreciate the members of the Sheet Metal Workers and the Minnesota Retailers and am honored to have their support.”
As Senate Taxes Chair, Nelson advanced policies to empower Minnesotans and drive economic growth. She authored and passed bipartisan legislation to lower income tax rates for every tax filer, end the taxation of social security and disability income and provide property tax relief.
Sen.
