Early child care and education, environmental stewardship and equity. I believe MN would be a better place if we cared for others and for our environment.
All citizens of our state should be able to vote. I do not support a voter ID law! It creates barriers to voting and we should make voting easier not more difficult. Democracy depends on the freedom to vote in safe and secure elections.
I am a white woman and so I would ask for recommendations from black, people of color and Indigenous people. Too often the people who the legislation will effect aren't asked their opinion. I would like to see more support for BIPOC entrepeneurs, farmers, teachers, and health professionals. We need to make sure women of color are paid equitably, paid family medical leave, working family tax credits and other measures that will help address racial disparities.
I would like to see child care funded so that the mostly women who do the work are well compensated so there is less of a shortage. If there was more state and federal funding for child care, parents could afford it. Child care is the backbone of our economy. As with all issues, I want to hear from the people who live in Distrit 9A. I don't have all of the answers, but I think together we can come up with workable solutions.
I do NOT want to take hunting guns away from law abiding citizens. Hunting is a way of life for many in District 9A. I do think we need background checks, and licensing like we do when we buy a care or motorcycle. We can make this work, we can compromise so little children and others are safe.
