Supporting our public schools, building up the ability to care, an economy that works for everyone.

As we continue to emerge from COVID, and deal with new issues, we need to be sure that we are working on the things that are top of mind for Minnesotans and that will pay long-term dividends. The challenges we face are, in many ways, not new, but have been greatly exacerbated and brought to the surface by the events of the last few years. The question is if we will take on the tough, but needed, conversations and necessary actions to address them, or simply continue to keep acting as though we can't (or shouldn't).
The fact is that our elections system in Minnesota is strong, and Minnesotans know it - it's one of the reasons that we consistently have the highest voter turnout in the nation. The systems and processes we have in place ensure that. If elections, at their heart, are about reflecting the voice of the people, then we should be doing everything we can to ensure that voice is reflective of our state - as we really are.
I believe that it all starts with education. Minnesota has one of the highest racial opportunity gaps in the nation, and we need to address it. Ensuring that policies, practices, and investments are being targeted to close those gaps is critical - specifically in the area of early childhood and special education. We also need to critically look at health access, criminal justice, and economic opportunities to ensure that we aren't just doing what feels right, but what will actually do good.
The ability to care, for ourselves and our families, is the central economic issue we face. We need to ensure that working Minnesotans have the time and resources to care for their parents, partners and children. Strengthening our higher education and transportation infrastructures, as well, will be critical moving forward. The legislature can and should take action to address price gouging and strengthen consumer protections.
The priorities we should be focusing on are Extreme Risk Protection Orders, or "red flag laws", as well as universal background checks. These are basic steps that are supported by law enforcement, and that we know can save lives. I would also support a prohibition on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
