Wanted to share a few thoughts on our opponents recent personal and financial problems as reported by Minnesota Public Radio. While there are many thoughts coming to mind, the word entitled seems appropriate. While many of the residents of our district are struggling, it is extremely out of touch of our current Representative for him to think that he is somehow deserving of special treatment while he boldly proclaims that the rest of us should “live within our means”. It is also his entitled thinking that leads him to believe that his constituents would allow this behavior to continue and return him to office this fall. My neighbors are smarter than that.
Why I Am Running for The Minnesota House
A letter to my friends and neighbors:
I am so happy to announce my candidacy for State Representative in House District 31A.
Our local politicians have made many promises to help fix the problems that affect our beautiful communities, but in reality, little has actually been done. Political games played by career politicians have prevailed over the will and needs of the people. I want to change that. We need a serious plan to improve transportation and infrastructure in our area. Failure to establish a reliable source of funding puts our local residents at a disadvantage. That is unacceptable to me.
I believe in putting hard working families first. Citizens in our district certainly pay their fair share of taxes to the state, but we get very little in return in terms of fairness in local property tax relief, broadband infrastructure and adequate support for our schools. It is time for a change in our Representation. Our community needs someone who will work for our families and small businesses.
I will work for all the residents of our community and am looking forward to hearing from you! I have lived in St. Francis for the last few years and in East Bethel prior to that. I have spent my lifetime in greater Minnesota, and I appreciate all that small town life has to offer to myself, my family and my friends. This is a good place to live, let’s make it better!
