Healthy Economy for All Minnesotans: I support meaningful and permanent tax cuts that help hardworking Minnesotans keep more of their money and combating inflation by growing our workforce, strengthen supply chains and cutting red tape. I support ending waste, fraud, and abuse. Safe Communities: Everyone should feel safe in our community. I'll support law enforcement, strengthen penalties for violent & repeat offenders, hold criminals accountable, and bolter mental health support services. Strong Schools: I support an education that gives every child the opportunity to succeed & thrive. We need a focus on academics & recognize parents' fundamental right to be involved in their child's education, & keep our best teachers in classroom.
Minnesota has some of the highest voter participation in the country and that should be celebrated. One law that I would propose is to allow the voter the option to put their ballot in the locked tabulator ( as you do on election day) during the full duration of our absentee voting timeline rather than just the last seven days.
I believe we need to promote better economic opportunities for Minnesotans from every background. We can promote business ownership & make sure existing state programs that give preference to minority owned businesses are serving their purpose and use state business development services to help these entrepreneurs cut through red tape. We can support organizations like Neighborhood Development Center that have strong track records of helping minority & first time business owners succeed.
I support meaningful & permanent tax cuts that help hardworking Minnesotans keep more of their own money and combating inflation by growing our workforce, strengthening supply chains, and cutting red tape. We need pro-growth policies that strengthen small businesses, encourage innovation and entrepreneurship, and create more good paying jobs. We also need to end waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars while holding the agencies accountable.
We are seeing the consequences of calling to Defund the Police. We need to fully fund police, hold criminals accountable, and increase penalties for repeat and violent criminals. We need federal partnerships with various Dept. of Justice and FBI task forces aimed to reduce violent crime. Continue to invest in pilot programs across the state that are proven effective like Community Outpost and expand the Group Violence Intervention program aimed at at-risk of gang violence.
