Name: Rep. Tom Anzelc.

Party affiliation: DFL.

Qualifications: Elected four times to Legislature. Service as teacher, coach, labor official, county commissioner, father of three, grandfather of four.

What do you want to accomplish if elected?: The past two year's work at the state Capitol has resulted in a growing state economy, a balanced state budget, historic increases in public education funding and tax cuts for the middle class. Progress has been made, but more must be done. Transportation infrastructure for northern Minnesota, higher education access and affordability and the state-county child protection system are some of my top goals. Narrowing the funding gap between metro and northern Minnesota is an ongoing effort as well.

Specifically, how would you accomplish your goals?: Lawmaking at the state Capitol requires research, the willingness to listen to the people here at home, the art of advocacy and persuasion and a passion for representative democracy. Rural and northern Minnesota deserve a representative with these skills. I will work to the best of my ability to negotiate fairly with members of both parties to find solutions for northern Minnesota.
