Public Education. Now is the time for an investment in public education pre-K through career training and mental health care. The success of our children today is the foundation of the economy tomorrow.

Healthcare and Reproductive Rights. I believe we all need access to quality affordable healthcare, effective contraceptives, and doctors to advise women on making pregnancy medical decisions. I believe in standing up for individual rights and freedoms.

Invest in infrastructure. For businesses to continue expansion across the state, investments in public infrastructure are necessary to maintain aging roads and water-related facilities. Minnesota needs an infrastructure decade to ensure a strong foundation for communities to thrive.
Minnesota has one of the best-run election systems in the country, and we should all be proud of that. With the dangerous rhetoric about the 2020 election, we should be on guard for attempts of voter intimidation in the future. I believe Minnesota should implement automatic voter registration and restore the right to vote when an individual has served out their time for a felony conviction.
I think it is important for the State to properly fund schools. We see outcome disparities when local property taxes and referendums are needed to cover the gap. Poor areas are not able to bridge the funding gap and fall further behind. Also, we need to look at new models in schools with large disparities where families are provided with more support systems. Last, we must protect women’s reproductive rights to limit disparities from growing more.
Working families and young people are struggling to find affordable housing and daycare. When workers can’t find reasonable housing and daycare nearby, it makes it harder for them to work locally. My experience as a civic leader has taught me that strong collaboration between business and government is vital. Because small businesses are the fabric that supports our local economies, we need ongoing solutions that foster partnerships rather than create hardships.
As someone who is a gun owner who holds a permit-to-carry, I know that there needs to be a balance between Second Amendment rights and keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals. I believe in responsible gun ownership as do the vast majority of Americans. We should work together to raise the legal age to buy a semi-automatic weapon to 21, institute universal background checks, and enforce Red Flag laws.
