Plymouth, MN – Following the release of new legislative maps, Bonnie Westlin made the following statement:

Today I am announcing my candidacy for state senate in new Senate District 42, which includes Plymouth, Maple Grove and Medicine Lake.

I am excited to continue my campaign to represent the residents of new Senate District 42. I’ve been a resident of the Northwest Metro area for most of my life, and I know how special these communities are to the people who choose to call them home. In the coming weeks and months, I’m eager to meet with voters, listen to their concerns and share my ideas about how together, we can tackle the urgent challenges we’re facing in this critical moment for our state.

I am in a strong position to run a competitive race in SD42. With nearly $60,000 in campaign funds on-hand and an army of campaign supporters and volunteers numbering in the hundreds, I believe I am well positioned to hit the ground running now that legislative maps have been finalized.

I’m running for our future and I’m running to win. I share the same hopes and values that matter to our community – great schools where our children can learn and thrive, affordable healthcare that’s there when we need it, and safe neighborhoods where we can raise our families and live our lives without worry.
