State Senator from House District 55
Thank you for visiting my website.
I am serving my second term in the Minnesota Senate, representing the communities of :
Shakopee, Credit River Township, Louisville Township Prior Lake, Jordan, Jackson Township, Spring Lake Township, Sand CreekTownship, St Lawrence Township
Sitting as Chair of the Jobs and Economic Growth Committee and serving on the Taxes, Commerce, and Energy and Rules Committees have helped me to focus on three main areas:
Create a favorable economic climate to create jobs and investment.
Education that prepares students to compete in the global economy.
Make sure Minnesota families' needs are met by reducing unnecessary mandates.
As a member of the Prior Lake-Savage School Board, we proved that differing opinions can work together to overcome big problems and make a positive difference. When I joined the School Board we faced a $1 million deficit and were borrowing $3 million to cover expenses. We didn’t always agree, but we worked it out. In the end, we were successful because we worked as a team.
This is the approach I use in St. Paul.
