Our schools are the pride of our community, and every child deserves the opportunity to pursue the best education possible. I will advocate for better access to mental health resources, smaller class sizes, and will always ensure our schools have the resources they need to be successful. I am also committed to promoting technical programs into our high schools so every student has a shot at high wages and good jobs.
In St. Paul I will be a tireless advocate for our public schools, our students and our teachers.
In St. Paul I won't stop fighting to lower the costs of being a homeowner, the cost of prescription drugs like insulin, or the costs of running a family farm or small business. One of my top priorities as your state senator will be to eliminate the state tax on Social Security income.
Times are tough right now, and I am running so we can all have more breathing room in our budgets.
A Strong Economy
I will always be a strong supporter of responsible tax relief that will put more money in your pockets, and as long as I am in St. Paul, I will work to create job retention and training programs and promote policies that advance affordable childcare. As your state senator I will hold wealthy corporations to account and and ban them from inflating prices of the essentials we need.
It's time that we have an economy that works for all of us, and not just for the wealthy few.
I support responsibly investing in public safety programs that keep our communities safe and allow our neighborhoods to thrive. I will fight to ensure that law enforcement gets the resources they need to do their jobs, including further funding to recruit and train more officers at the local level. I am also a proponent of proven violence prevention strategies that can be implemented alongside these critical investments.
As your next state senator, our police officers and first responders will always have an advocate in St. Paul.
Protect Reproductive Freedom
The decision of when to start a family should be left up to mothers and their doctors. I strongly support a person's right to make decisions about their own bodies and in St. Paul I will work to protect access to reproductive healthcare. With the fall of Roe v. Wade, state legislatures have become the last line of defense for abortion access, and I will always stand up to extremists who want to take that right away from Minnesota women.
A Sustainable Future
In St. Paul I will work to make Minnesota a more sustainable place to live, work, and raise a family. Supporting efforts that combat climate change will make our communities better, our farmers safer and our children able to grow up in a world where they can thrive.
