My Journey

My journey to becoming an attorney started in a rural town where I was born and raised. My parents instilled in me the importance of living a fulfilling life based on hard work and integrity. They made me value financial self-sufficiency. My father put on his uniform and left for the local canning plant at 4AM and then worked his way up to traveling globally for General Mills.

Getting Blaine Its FAIR Share!

Recently, we have not been represented well enough. The North Metro gets a poor return on its tax dollars and needs to fight for its fair share of infrastructure projects instead of watching our taxes go elsewhere.

As your representative, I will focus on putting more money in your pockets while ensuring a business-friendly environment. We must compete against the world in a fiscally responsible manner while honoring our values and uplifting the less fortunate. Let’s get Blaine its fair share.

JOBS

Good paying jobs are the lifeblood of a community. A hard day’s work is good for people in many different ways. We need to make sure Blaine and the rest of Minnesota is a good place to do business. Companies value having an educated, healthy workforce and good infrastructure.

HEALTHCARE

The number one cause of bankruptcy in America is medical expenses. Healthcare needs to be affordable for Minnesotans. While there are great programs like MinnesotaCare, more needs to be done. A healthy workforce is a productive, tax-paying workforce. Healthy children are better able to focus on achieving academically.

EDUCATION

Good paying jobs occur where there is an educated work force. While some people want to cut education funding, most Minnesotans realize that the world is becoming more competitive and that education is a key to achieving the American dream.

SENIORS

It is unfair that people pay property taxes for 30-40 years and then when they retire, they are overburdened with taxes on the home they live in. Fairness dictates a cut in property taxes for our seniors. In addition, we should be strengthening Medicare instead of making cuts.

GOVERNMENT

Instead of career politicians who put their party ahead of their constituents, we need elected officials who understand that there is work that has to get done. Roads have to be fixed, schools have to be funded, and there is governing to do and that means working with Democrats and Republicans.
