I talk to people every day who struggle to put food on the table and fill their gas tanks. It doesn't help when the corporations our workers make rich don't even come to the negotiating table to barter for fair contracts. To help afford a good life, I'm running a campaign with three priorities: Local Jobs, Strong Schools, and Healthy Communities. If we put the right focus on these issues, the Northland can continue being the best place for families to raise their kids, work a good paying job, and retire comfortably.
Minnesota has the best run elections in the country. Our top in the nation participation rate is proof that voters believe in the validity of our system. We need leaders who will stand up for democracy, and not cast doubts when they lose or spread conspiracy theories. I support Minnesota's system of no excuse absentee balloting, and I am interested in exploring automatic voter registration and pre-registering high school students so we remain top in the country for participation.
One of the biggest drivers of racial disparities is housing. Minnesota simply does not have enough housing, which leads to a crisis in affordability, homelessness, and access to the top school districts. I support state investment in housing, homeownership programs, and reducing property taxes.
A vibrant economy comes from putting workers first. I’ve saved and created jobs as a unionized small business owner. On the Range, mining is our way of life. I will bring stakeholders together to negotiate long-term land and lease deals to keep mines open. I’m a Twin Metals and Polymet champion. Our minerals will transform America’s economy if we stop attacks on the permitting process. Our miners know how to do it safely, while preserving the natural resources that drive our tourism industry.
Crime committed with firearms is a scourge. I support well-designed Red Flag laws that include judicial hearings for the accused in order to keep guns out of the hands of abusers. The largest category of gun violence is suicide. Safe storage laws are critical; I support imposing strict penalties if an unsecured firearm is used in a violent crime. We must counter the suicide epidemic with improvements to mental health services, particularly ensuring every school has a counselor available.
