My top advocacy issues are: -Gun Violence Prevention -Reproductive Freedom -Protecting Democracy My top spending priorities are: -State funding of Special Education services to provide local property tax relief. -Funding pay increases to direct care workers, including nursing home workers and personal care attendants to attract workers to these professions. -Provide matching funds to tap our full share of federal infrastructure dollars. My top personal legislative initiatives include: -Healthcare Pricing Transparency – Reveal the cost of our drugs and care in advance of treatment. -Eliminate exclusionary zoning restrictions on the creation of affordable Housing -Consumer Data Privacy– Consumers should own and control their data.
Minnesota has always had free and fair elections, and we are justifiably proud of our first in the Nation voter turnout. We need to defend our much-deserved reputation for election integrity from specious conspiracy theories and stand up for our local election polling place volunteers who do the important front-line work of ensuring that our elections are executed with integrity.
I am leading the charge to prohibit exclusionary municipal zoning practices that are the modern successor to redlining and exclusionary racial covenants. I support enhanced police officer licensing standards to weed out “bad cops” who tarnish the reputation of the profession and curbs on “pretextual stops” that disproportionately target racial minorities. I believe that we need redouble our efforts to close the education “achievement gap”.
Minnesota’s most important economic challenge is its worker shortage. Businesses consistently rate “attracting and retaining a quality workforce” as their number one challenge and they understand that the keys to addressing this challenge are maintaining the quality of the education we are providing to new generations of workers, providing workforce housing near job centers and providing frequent and reliable transportation options, including public transit, to connect workers with jobs.
I have voted for both a Red Flag Law to keep guns out of the hands of those in mental distress and Universal Background Checks, and I would vote for a ban on the sale and possession of AR-15-style assault weapons (as well as a buy-back provision for those already in circulation). I am a Moms Demand Action “Gun Sense Candidate”.
