Tied up 58 to 58!

Miss you.

The Bison are like Trump. They win so much they get tired of winning! Go herd!

Today my 2nd term as the State Representative for Maple Grove and Osseo will conclude. It has been an honor to represent you in St. Paul for the past 4 years.

A heartfelt thanks for your continued support during my tenure and through my campaigns.

I am proud of my record setting 34 bills signed by Gov. Dayton, including;
• Real ID (HF3) – making air travel easier for all Minnesotans,
• American with Disabilities Act (HF 1542) – increasing access for disabled persons and removing needless legal barriers for small business owners,
• Notarial Act (HF 1609) – effective this week, simplifies the notary process and allows a consumer-friendly remote notary option,
• Home Ownership Bill (HF 1538) – expands home ownership opportunities for middle income Minnesotans,
• Brockton and Highway 610 Exchange Bill (HF 3800) – added freeway lanes and created a new exit on I-94 to make our growing suburb more transportation friendly, and
• Maple Grove Tax Incremental Financing Bill (HF 732) – offers the city of Maple Grove more financial flexibility to continue its vibrant and smart growth.

I carry with me an optimism in Minnesota’s politics and legislative process and look forward to the many possibilities for my future in these arenas.

Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you around town!
