Why are you running for this position?

I am running for MN State Representative to serve my Savage and Burnsville neighbors, listen to their concerns, seek to understand, and work together to find the best solutions to the problems facing our community. I, like many of my neighbors, am concerned with the current divisiveness in politics and am committed to bring my steady and unifying demeanor to the Legislature. I am answering the call of my neighbors who recruited me through a petition to return to the MN House of Representatives to represent them.
