The price of everything seems to keep rising. I will help by cutting taxes and reducing the cost of healthcare and childcare. I'll secure dollars to fix Highway 65 and get a water treatment plant for Lexington. And I'll address rising crime in our state to keep the quiet neighborhoods our district values. A lot of politicians just talk about public safety. I led an effort to reduce violent crime by 40% in one north metro community. Voters want someone who can bring together people from different backgrounds to deliver results. I’ve gotten three bills passed just as a private citizen, and each time I did it with support from Democrats and Republicans.
I’m proud of the fact that Minnesota regularly leads the country in voter turnout. I will protect the laws that make this possible, like same day registration, early voting, and a vote-by-mail option. I also support addressing any legitimate issues that can make our elections safer and more secure. I will listen closely to our amazing election judges on the frontlines of our elections. If they have ideas for improving the safety and security of our elections, I will work hard to make them law.
I’ve spent much of my career working to shrink the gaps our diverse neighbors face. It starts with all students having high quality schools. Our top priority should be on the basics like reading and math. I will introduce bills so our teachers have what they need to get every student up to grade level. I will also write bills that continue my commitment to training for job seekers who may need extra help. For those in our justice system, I will invest in proven programs to prevent re-offending.
Families and small businesses are feeling the pinch of rising prices. I will help by giving a large portion of the budget surplus back in the form of tax cuts. Eliminate the tax on social security benefits and provide property tax relief. The lack of workers is also hurting our economy. I will grow our workforce by expanding the Working Family Tax Credit and funding training for younger workers. I will also reduce the cost of healthcare and childcare to help families and businesses thrive.
It starts with mental health. I will push for easier access to mental health care and support a strong pipeline of mental health workers. We can also reduce the risk of gun violence while protecting the 2nd Amendment rights of responsible gun owners. Background checks keep guns out of the wrong hands. Red flag laws can prevent tragedies while providing due process protections. The state should provide funding for cities to hire more investigators to solve gun crimes, which too often go unsolved.
