As the current State Senator for District 21 and the endorsed Republican candidate running for the re-numbered Minnesota Senate District 16 seat, I ask for your support and your vote for my re-election to the Minnesota Senate. District 16 includes all of Brown, Lac qui Parle, Yellow Medicine Counties; and parts of Lyon, Renville, and Redwood Counties.
I want to continue representing the people of this district because I believe rural Minnesota needs a strong, experienced voice in the legislature. I was born and raised in the area and I know how the decisions made in St. Paul impact our district as well as our future.
As a Senator having served as a director on several community boards, my background in business and agriculture, and my experience in county government has help me tremendously in crafting and passing legislation that was in the best interest of rural Minnesota and our district.
Currently, as your State Senator I serve as Vice-Chair of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Economies Committee, and am a member of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee, the Senate Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee, the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR), I serve as co-chair on the Minnesota Agricultural Education Leadership Council (MAELC), and on the Board of Directors of the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI). These committee memberships allow me to be actively engaged in issues involving agriculture, economic development, environment and natural resources, education, and commerce.
As a pro-life, fiscal and social conservative, I look forward to meeting you and other constituents throughout our new district. I will work hard now and through Election Day to earn your vote.
