An Economy that Works for Minnesotans. I will press for an economic plan to accelerate our recovery and strengthen our state’s prosperity.

A Safer Minnesota with Thriving Neighborhoods and Communities. Minnesotans want safe and thriving neighborhoods and communities where they can live, work and raise their family. I will work to make Minnesota communities safer. Prioritizing crime prevention and reduction by ensuring law enforcement officers have the funding they need to serve.

A Focus on Health, Wellbeing and Quality of Life. Minnesota is known for its economic innovation and opportunity, some of the best healthcare in the world, strong public schools and a rich outdoor heritage. I will work to strengthen and protect those.

Minnesota has a rich history of voter turnout. Matter of fact, the last few election cycles we led the nation in voter engagement. We must make sure this conversation does not become partisan. It is our roll to assure accuracy and trust in our elections. Minnesota leads. We have a simple commonsense approach to assuring that in the fact we have paper ballots, audits to confirm election results, paper back ups of our voter database Automatic voter registration increases accuracy of voter rolls
Minnesota has some of the worst inequities in racial disparity. Add to that the intersectionality of disability and it only activates us to do the following to address this: 1. College readiness should be strengthened at every level, 2. stream line remedial instruction and increase a state wide compensatory education model that AH11 has, 3. Career and Technical Education courses need to get back on the radar screen and aligned with local employer needs. 4, debt relief for low income students.
This Global inflation has other countries asking the same question. Some reports fueled in part by the invasion of Ukraine has seen rising energy and food prices. Other countries have seen their inflation numbers well over what is happening in the U.S and particularly Minnesota. We have a current surplus, but due to inflation, that surplus will be reduced. I think we find a balanced approach in savings and also big tax breaks and spending for our citizens to help ease this moment in time.
This takes a Federal/State partnership, as current federal law intertwines with state law. We must all come from a place where we believe everyone has a guaranteed right to learn, live and grow free from violence and fear. There have been many bills introduced but no real discussions in hearings since 2014. Where is the discussion on Universal Background Checks, Prohibition of access for high risk, enactments of child prevention, requirement of child safety features and research on violence.
