Senate District 5
Current employment: Insurance agent/owner John Carlson Agency, Inc.
Public office experience: First term Minnesota State Senate
Party affiliation: Republican
What makes you the most qualified candidate for the post you¹re seeking?: I’m a businessman, former youth sports coach and community activist. I’m a servant leader who works hard to make my community a better place to live. I’m not a career politician. I have never been a school board member, city councilor or county commissioner.
I care more about solving problems than pointing blame. We can accomplish so much more when we aren’t concerned who gets the credit.
In my first two-year term in the Minnesota Senate, I chief-authored 59 bills and got 28 eight of them passed into law, either as stand-alone bills or part of larger omnibus bills.
