As the legislative session draws to a close in St. Paul, it is really nice to see we have an amazing representative in Josh Heintzeman. He is doing a great job representing both sides and voting the will of the district. Josh may not vote the way you want on every issue or push for the larger cut or larger increase that every voter wants but he does the more important things; he listens, examines and when he is informed and heard from the people then he decides. It is not about him and he knows that.

People have attacked Josh for what they think is his stance on schools, yet Josh voted for increases to schools in greater Minnesota.

He is also working to help college students and ensure they are not cheated out of credits they have earned when they go from a two-year college to a four-year college in the MnSCU system.

Josh is standing firm against any increase in a gas tax and understands there are other ways to pay for roads when we have a $2 billion surplus and real priorities need to be set in St. Paul.

We need more like Josh.
