Minnesotans can be proud of what the legislature accomplished in the last two years. From raising the minimum wage (indexed for inflation) to marriage equality, we accomplished more than in any other two years in my memory. And we adjourned early!
We made real progress for working Minnesotans and middle class families: we paid back the money borrowed from our schools; we invested more in education including free all-day kindergarten for every child; we froze tuition at all public Minnesota colleges and universities; we leveled the playing field for women in the workplace; we provided real property tax relief for middle-class Minnesotans; and we produced an honest budget that got rid of gimmicks. Check out “The Issues” for more of our accomplishments.
Your DFL neighbors unanimously endorsed me for re-election at the District 63B convention in March. However another candidate filed for the primary so I have a primary election contest as well as a general election contest.
Your vote is important in the August 12 primary election. You can apply for an absent ballot for the primary now. With the new law you can vote absentee without a specific reason to do so.
I hope to meet you as I campaign this summer and fall and would appreciate your support. Please call if you have questions or concerns.
