I served five-terms in the Minnesota House of Representatives, representing District 20B (Northfield, Dundas, Lonsdale, Montgomery and surrounding townships.)
I strive to support the five essential building blocks for a Land of Opportunity in the modern age: quality education, health care for everyone, a world-class education system, safe and clean energy systems, and living wages for working people.
A former educator in Minnesota public schools for 30 years, I’ve come to realize that the success of the individual and community are closely intertwined. When you connect people to resources and opportunities, there are better outcomes for the individuals and the community. In the words of the late U.S. Senator Paul Wellstone, “We all do better when we all do better.”
I believe my knowledge and experience of the legislative process have prepared me to talk about and advocate for policies and interests that serve the needs of people of Minnesota. I am currently looking for new ways to do this if you wish to contact me about my ideas or invite me as a speaker please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
