Dear Friend,
I am the DFL endorsed candidate for State Senate in District 34 here in Rogers, Dayton, Maple Grove, and Osseo. I will need your help to take this seat in 2016 and am asking you to contribute to my campaign today. I will also need a solid grassroots organization to get our message out to the entire district.

I’m running this year because citizens of our state have so much in common, and divisive politics have separated us from one another and the values that we share. When we are divided, we do a disservice to the promise of our state and to the future of our children, who will bear the brunt of ineffective leadership on both the state and federal level. I work with families every day, and hear first-hand about the difficulties faced by our struggling middle class.  We need to have an economy that works for everybody, not just the 1%. While Minnesota fared better during the Great Recession than much of the country, we need to do more to ensure we have well trained workers to expand our economy and keep us innovative and competitive.

With your help, I will work to strengthen our schools and communities. This includes providing increased funding for our schools so that ALL of Minnesota’s children will have access to the world-class education they will need to be competitive here, around the country and globally. I also support all Minnesotans having the benefit of policies like paid family and sick leave, not just those already well-off.

I started my own family law practice in 2004 to help clients and their children through the difficult transitions they face during divorce. With my experience as an attorney and mediator, as well as a small business owner, I will provide leadership and the effective problem-solving, coalition building skills needed to move beyond partisan divides so that our state government works for the people of Minnesota.

This year presents a unique opportunity to change the poisonous political conversation and take this district by running a campaign on shared Minnesota values. The history of Minnesota is rich with stories of people working to help one another create a better environment in which to live and work while improving the region for future generations. If you would like to join us, click on the DONATE and VOLUNTEER links. We’re determined to make this a campaign one for our entire district, and we would be honored to have you join us for the road ahead.

Thank you and now, let's get to work!
