My priorities will always be policies that support people first. I will work to ensure that the people of MN have the care they need by crafting legislation so all people have time and services that they need to care for their families, children and seniors. As part of this commitment to care, I will also prioritize access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare, including reproductive healthcare. I will also champion legislation that works to create an educational system that is equitable and allows all Minnesotan children to achieve their goals including fully funding special education at the state level. I will also protect and give voice to workers, prioritizing their needs above that of corporations.
Minnesota’s elections are safe and fair. Minnesota voter turn out ranks some of the highest in the country. I will continue to partner with our Secretary of State to remove barriers such as transportation by supporting no reason absentee voting and early vote by mail.
I would follow the suggestions of my colleagues in the People of Color and Indigenous Caucus and lean into their lived experience. I will be a fierce advocate for the Teachers of Color Act. I know how important it is for children to see examples of themselves in the classroom. I will support legislation that creates a more inclusive Minnesota.
Rising inflation is hurting working families and while many of these things are not within the control of the state legislature there are practical policies we can implement that put more money in the pockets of people to offset. This would include increasing childcare tax credits, child tax rebates, homestead credit and student loan credits. Coupled with supporting legislation to increase access to truly affordable healthcare and prescriptions. MN economy depends on workers being supported.
The passage of federal gun safety measures is a great first step, but more work needs to be done. I will work to ensure that MN implements the provisions of the federal law concisely. We need to close the loop holes in our protective order practices that have no accountability measures for abusers and leave their victims with a false sense of security; we must have accountability. I will work to expand education campaigns about safe gun storage to protect children from accidental gun deaths.
