With over $16 trillion in federal government debt and a state government that, since 1960, has grown over 500% after adjusting for population growth and inflation, Minnesotans are aware of our financial crisis. Our job creators are watching closely, wondering if government will deliver them more job-killing taxes and regulations, or not.
I’ve dedicated my efforts in the Minnesota Legislature to reforming the way government functions. I have worked to end local government mandates, reform labor agreements, and restructure and downsize the bureaucracy. Our economy creates jobs when the government’s budget stays within the means of Minnesota’s families and businesses.
Last session, I chief authored and passed major welfare fraud elimination legislation into law. This will end the terrible acts of thousands of people who abuse the goodwill of Minnesotans each year. My legislative plans include additional initiatives to stop the waste, fraud, and abuse of Minnesotans’ generosity that we find way too often in government.
Unlike my opponent and most legislative candidates, I have never accepted campaign contributions from PACs or lobbyists. My focus and allegiance has been, and will continue to be, representing the interests of my constituents.
We need to bring government to serve the people again. When we do, 170,000 unemployed Minnesotans will be able to get back to work.
As November 6th approaches, I humbly ask for your vote.
