Hello, I am Bonnie Westlin and I am once again challenging the 24-year incumbent in Senate District 34. I am a family law attorney and mediator in my professional life, and I will bring desperately needed skills as a negotiator to the Minnesota Senate. We can do better at ensuring the needs of Minnesotans are addressed.

My values match the values of this district. Public education must be well-funded from early childhood through high school. Strong public schools empower every student to be well prepared for success at work, at home and in community life. Our teachers and our students need to be set up for success.

We need to make postsecondary education affordable for everyone. Like many Minnesotans, my postsecondary education left me with burdensome student loan debt. We must ensure the middle class isn’t priced out of the American Dream. But, we also have to have a broad strategy for developing our 21st century workforce that includes training in the trades and technical fields, as well as at our 4-year colleges.  

As a small business owner, I have to purchase individual health insurance for myself and my son. So I understand firsthand how difficult it is to pay premiums and co-pays AND meet high deductibles. Our healthcare system is broken and I am committed to fixing it. We need to ensure all Minnesotans have access to affordable healthcare, including prescriptions drugs. Nobody should die in this country because they cannot afford life-saving medications, such as insulin.

I believe that there is more that connects us than divides us. But we need leaders who will focus on our common values and beliefs rather than fueling divisive and corrosive politics. We can do better. 

Are you are angry about the state of our politics, feel that important issues aren't being addressed? Don't get mad. Get busy.

I ask for your support, your time and your vote. Let's work together to build a better future for our community and our State.
