As a part of my goal to support working families on the Eastside, my top 3 priorities include: addressing education equity; supporting affordable housing; and ensuring equitable economic development.

We have chronically underfunded our public education system for years. But now, as we move towards the end of the pandemic, we must ensure that all our students have the resources they need to be successful.

While Minnesota recently recorded its lowest level of unemployment ever, this recovery hasn’t been felt equally - we see this when you drive by the empty storefronts on Arcade and White Bear Ave. I want to make sure families everywhere have access to safe and affordable housing, while also being able to thrive socially and economically.
Our elections are safe. Mail-in ballots are safe. We need to protect our poll workers, and election officials whose jobs have increasingly become more dangerous due to the rhetoric of Conservatives who would rather destroy our democracy for political gain.

We also need to support county election offices by providing funds to: upgrade voting infrastructure; expand voter assistance services like in-language resources and multilingual election judges; and expand outreach to youth.
The pandemic only exacerbated Minnesota’s health and education equity problems. So statewide recovery efforts must include funding public schools to cut down the teacher/student ratio, and providing extra support to the students who need it most - many of whom are low-income, immigrant, and/or students of color.

We have also have to actively tackle the health disparities that made it more likely for Minnesotans of color to be hospitalized and die from COVID, than their counterparts.
In Minnesota, we won’t see rates go up as high 80% like other countries around the world because of the leadership of our governor and the President. But there are key actions we can take at the state level to get a hold on inflation: Promote and support more production of goods in Minnesota, and source domestically in the U.S.; invest in our child care infrastructure to create new jobs, and allow the women who left the workforce during the pandemic to return; and contain the COVID pandemic.
I support universal background checks, like a majority of Americans do. I’d also like to point out that a lot of the guns that have been used in incidents on the Eastside have been lost or stolen. So I would support legislation to require gun owners to report when their firearms have been lost or stolen. Of course, we need action at the federal level, because guns get trafficked over state lines. This is why a state like Illinois with good laws on the books still sees gun violence.
