Thank you for visiting my website.
I am serving my first term in the Minnesota Senate, representing the communities of :
Shakopee Credit River Twp Louisville Twp Prior Lake Jordan
Jackson Twp Spring Lake Twp Sand Creek Twp St Lawrence Twp
Sitting on the Commerce, Education, Higher Education and Transportation Committees have helped me to focus on three main areas:
• Create a favorable economic climate to create jobs and investment.
• Education that prepares students to compete in the global economy.
• Allow local governments to be responsive to their community’s needs by reducing unnecessary mandates.
As a member of the Prior Lake-Savage School Board, we proved that differing opinions can work together to overcome big problems and make a positive difference. When I joined the School Board we faced a $1 million deficit and were borrowing $3 million to cover expenses. We didn’t always agree, but we worked it out. In the end, we were successful because we worked as a team.
This is the approach I use in St. Paul.
