Continue working for every Minnesotan to have access to quality, affordable health care, by standing up to insurance and drug companies. Patients must come before profits.
Excellent education for every Minnesotan, early childhood to career. This includes reducing the cost and increasing access to childcare, and free tuition at public colleges for 2 years post-high school. Supporting public schools and students, including with free meals at school.
Protect our environment. Reduce greenhouse gasses as quickly as possible and protect our air, water, wildlife, and natural resources.
Minnesota’s elections are safe and secure, but our democracy is under threat because Trump and his followers have intentionally undermined confidence in it. They cry “fraud” without evidence in order to restrict voting rights. For example, voter ID solves no actual problem but would make it harder for some voters to vote.
Instead, we need automatic voter registration and other policies that encourage participation by making voting easier and more convenient, while still safe and secure.
I have supported many proposals to close these gaps, especially in the area of health care and public health, as well as education and criminal justice.
As our state becomes more diverse it is in everyone’s interest that we all have opportunities to develop our talents and fully participate in our economy. I will continue working to make sure all Minnesotans have what they need to thrive.
Minnesota’s economy is doing relatively well, but many people are struggling to make ends meet. I would help them by reducing child care costs, reducing the cost of healthcare and prescriptions, and renewing the child tax credit. I also support Gov Walz’s proposal to send budget surplus checks to Minnesotans of modest means.
Policies that reduce costs for ordinary Minnesotan or put money in their pockets also support our economy, but policies that give tax breaks to the wealthy do not.
Minnesotans deserve to be safe in schools, places of worship, and everywhere else. Our nation has far more gun violence than others because we have so many guns, not because our mental health is worse than other nations.
I support common sense gun safety laws, such as universal background checks, red flag laws, and reducing the accessibility of weapons of war. No one policy will solve the whole problem, but doing more to keep guns out of the wrong hands is essential.
I want to help focus on the issues that bring us together and not divide us. The basic needs of our community.
Education - our children should be a top priority for all.
Affordable living and a strong economy
A safe community for families
I just want to listen to the needs here and help the people in our community the best I can.
We all need to know that our elections are secure and we need to make sure all eligible to vote can vote. Voter I.D. is one simple step that we can take to help. I will always be open to listen and learn more about this issue and work with everyone to find good solutions.
I have worked with a number of organizations to address issues of poverty and disparities in different areas of the country and education always comes to the top. This is a big issue with a lot of parts and it starts with affordable housing and living, less taxation on income, education, proper resources and access to quality healthcare. Most importantly we need people just willing to be open, listen and have conversations.
The first thing is help pass the tax bill that was already created with bipartisan support and help put money back into the pockets of Minnesotans and remove social security tax on our seniors. Supporting those creating jobs, education, less government spending and restrictions, and making sure we are making decisions that help reduce the cost of living and not increase it.
I will continue to focus on the mental health issues within our community. So many are needing help and support and we need to make sure we are doing all we can to find ways to help people before acts of violence of any kind take place. I was always told you want to start at the root of a problem if you want to make an impact.
