Thank you for the privilege of representing you and your neighbors in Dayton, Maple Grove and Rogers in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
Every day brings a new challenge and a new reason to be excited about my job and I am very grateful for the confidence you have placed in me. For the past two legislative sessions, I have been honored to be elected House Majority Leader by my colleagues.
As Majority Leader, my duties include serving as Chair of the Rules Committee, scheduling legislation, directing floor debate and helping manage budget and policy negotiations with the Governor and Senate.
It has been an honor to serve as your voice at the Capitol, and I am asking for your support and vote to continue to work on the education, health care, transportation, tax reform and environmental issues facing our state.
I have worked to bring a positive, energetic leadership style to the job, and your suggestions and ideas help me serve you better. Thanks for all your feedback!
Please feel free to contact me by e-mail, phone or letter if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. If you have a constituent concern, need help with a state agency, want to sign up for e-mail updates or are looking for legislative information, visit my official House of Representatives website here. I look forward to hearing from you!
