1. Education: I want to work on funding cross-subsidy payments from the State and Federal to cover the costs of special education mandates. 2. Public Safety: I have worked with the St. Cloud Community Policing Agreement and the Stearns County Sheriff’s Agreement and community organizations to continue dialogue between community groups and our officers. The agreements are effective in keeping our communities safe. 3. Transportation: From 2016-2019, I worked with legislators to bring the NorthStar Rail up to St. Cloud.
I would keep in place early voting requirements and vote by mail without an excuse. I would also keep restrictions on voter ID laws.
We need people from the BIPOC communities at our decision-making tables. I would legislate and support set requirements for representation from the community to be involved in decision making, and labor make-up of our educational, public safety and leadership institutions. Incentives for BIPOC businesses to develop in our communities.

I would press for lifting of tariffs to allow the flow of supplies to increase. I would also press for immigration centers/offices to be fully staffed to allow the return of immigrants who were part of our labor force.
Looking at and supporting further data into gun violence. Taken from the National institute of Justice article by Basia E. Lopez, “A data point will not stop a bullet, but evidence-based research grounded in reliable science is a proven pathway for addressing the gun violence crisis in the United States.” Now we are getting studies and data. Since we have resolved many safety issues in the U.S. with studies, I propose we do so with gun violence.
