About Me

  • If sent to St Paul I will work to address, in a common sense way, challenges facing the people of this district and the state - always looking for ways to enhance the income and quality of life of my neighbors. Our district deserves fully funded schools; high-quality, affordable healthcare; and good paying jobs with decent wages.
