I will push for the ERA Amendment in Minnesota. We have never had it in our state, and I believe it should have been instituted long ago. This is an important step in addressing inequalities, including pay disparity between women and men.
Government should fully fund public education, ensuring we have the best teachers and offer the best opportunities to our students. Our district is currently facing a deficit, which is directly related to the federal and state mandates for special education. Neither is paying their fair share to our district, as was promised. I will fight hard to get this money back from the state and federal governments, helping to ensure all our students and public school teachers have the resources they need. I also support more state funding for pre-kindergarten programs. Every child deserves the opportunity to be successful in school, regardless of their economic background.
I will focus my energies towards creating job opportunities throughout Minnesota. Improvements in infrastructure, supporting independent business owners, amplifying the voices of farmers and laborers, and ensuring equal pay and opportunities for all Minnesotans will keep our state in the forefront of economic health and prosperity.

I have a vision of a vibrant economy that supports working families with access to affordable child care, a smart and accessible public transportation network, excellent educational opportunities, and wages that allow families to pay the bills, recreate, and save for the future. In the legislature, I will seek ways to bolster our economic policies so that all Minnesotans have the ability to thrive.
I support full background checks on all gun purchases, and common sense gun laws, providing for the safety of our communities.
I believe we need a pathway toward citizenship. If someone is willing to come here and follow the laws, our doors should be open.
