As your State Senator,

I will work to bring us together.  I believe in a community that is united by common values.
It is important to have great schools and safe neighborhoods.


  1. Working together for achievable, common sense solutions
  2. Solving problems locally
  3. Empowering local schools, volunteer organizations, strong families
  4. Providing safe neighborhoods

I will work to protect the right to life for the unborn. I believe that life begins at conception and ends at natural death. I oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. Adoption should be the choice over abortion.


Strong Families
Children are best raised by their mom and dad living together in a life-long marriage. Studies have shown the benefits to children when they are raised by a mother and a father. At the same time, we must help single parents, foster parents, and grandparents, succeed in their desire to raise healthy children.

  • Minnesotans believe in conservative values such as hard work, success, friendliness, and fairness.  In order for Minnesota to flourish, we must be united by the many values we share.
  • We must fight against politics of division—which some use to advance their agenda.
  • We are all Minnesotans.  We might look different, but we are neighbors.  I have embraced diversity and continue to do so. 
  • Building up and helping our Community.  Helping a person in need is an important virtue.  I have been a leader of diverse teams of volunteers in service to those in need.
