Legislative Survey Available

The 2013 legislative session is now underway and Minnesota still faces a number of challenges — first and foremost, closing a $1.1 billion budget deficit. As in past years, I need your input on a variety of topics to help me make the best decisions for our community and Minnesota’s future.

You can find my survey online by visiting my House website at <> and then click on “2013 Legislative Survey” or by visiting <>. If you would like a paper copy to fill out, please contact my office at 651-296-4333 or email me at <> and we would be happy to send you one.

Please continue to contact me with your questions, concerns, and suggestions for legislation. As always, I look forward to hearing from you.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
