Q Why do you seek this office?
A I have served northeast Minnesotans in their House seat at the State Capitol for eight years. There continues to be ongoing work that needs to be accomplished as requested by the constituents of House District 6A in many areas.
The most commonly discussed and worked on here in St. Paul are education and health care. The critical issue that drives much of the needed work is that people have a good, reasonable-paying, dependable job.
Q What is the most critical issue facing the state? How do you plan to take it on?
A Critically speaking, our regional economy, the use of its human and natural resources to invent, value-add concepts, innovation and the development of natural resources in a responsible manner will pave the way for not only regional economic stability but provide the ideas, products and materials for the balance of the state to prosper.
Since elected and working with folks across the district and state we have worked corroboratively towards these goals.
Q Is there one thing you can promise North Shore residents from your term in office?
A That I will continue to listen to their ideas, share their excitement and sorrows, serve their needs, provide timely constituent service and always remember that this is their House seat at the State Capital, not mine and that I am here at their discretion.
