Name: Rep. John Ward.

Party affiliation: DFL.

Qualifications: Experience matters in elected office and I have eight years as the current state representative. I know and understand the legislative process and have had many legislative successes. I am in a leadership role at the House. I have earned the trust and respect of fellow legislators from both parties.

What do you want to accomplish if elected?: My top priority will be to continue to be responsive to you, my constituents, with your problems, questions, concerns or needs. Over the last eight years as your state representative, I have had the privilege and joy of quickly responding when you asked me for help. I also want to continue to fight for the issues you have told me are important to you; creating living wage jobs, equitable funding for your children's education, providing property tax relief and working to protect our environment and natural resources are a few examples of what I hope to accomplish.

Specifically, how would you accomplish your goals?: As I have done the past eight years, I will continue to care, listen and work for all. I am very accessible in the community by being at every community function I am able to attend. I visit with and listen to as many folks as possible at these events. I regularly communicate through the media about topics/issues I feel are important to my constituents. I have positioned myself as a leader in the Minnesota House who is looked to for advice and input. My experience, seniority and reputation will continue to help me in accomplishing my goals.
