So sad to see this result. Best to you and your family in your new endeavors.

You have served us well and faithfully for several years and I am so upset by the outcome of this race. We will continue to fight the good fight you led despite this loss. Thank you for all you did for Osseo and all our district.

Thank you for your service! So disappointed (putting in nicely) in MN voters. They have truly lost their minds! If you don't take your talents somewhere else, I hope you consider running again in 2020!

Thank you for being our voice these past 4 years!

You did a good job Dennis. Thank you for all you did.

This state has gone to hell!!

Sorry to hear it went the way it did. This was a crazy election.

Thank you for your service, sir!

Oh, Dennis you will be missed. Thank you for your service!!!

Thank you for your service to our community. We were blessed to have you!

Osseo and Maple Grove have been lucky to be represented by you the last four years!

Great job these past 4 years. Thank you!

This is the kind of class we desperately need in both American politics and our society at large. Thank you, and best wishes to you with whatever comes next in your career.

Thank you for you're service Dennis! All the best...

I'm so sorry you didn't win! But thank you so much for the clear stand you have taken for life. God bless you.

Thank you for representing us!

Thank you Dennis for serving! You will be missed Please stay in touch

Thanks for your dedicated service. I would hope you’re planning on running to win your seat back in 2020

Thanks for 4 great years. Wish it would have been more

Congratulations on serving for four years, Dennis. Don't take it personally, or let it get you down. The candidate I voted for in my district was not elected either. Well wishes to you.

Thank you for all your hard work in serving our area. Two years from now?

Thanks for your service. You represented our district well!

Thanks Dennis for your four years hard work for us. It’s a big loss for us and the state. Hope you’re able to ramp up your practice.

Did you know that Kristin Bahner is a small business owner? She is going to be a great representative for Maple Grove and Osseo!

Thank you Dennis for continuing to be the voice of Maple Grove and Osseo. We are looking forward to another victory this election year! Your continued commitment to the community is much appreciated !

My daughter was not home but got your flyer with a hand written note. She was impressed you took the time to do that. Proof you are a caring person for MG residents.

You are not what Maple Grove needs. We need someone who will represent all the people and not just the wealthy.

You have my vote, Dennis!

Dennis, the Developers are the ones that benefit from TIF money, not the small businesses!

You already know you have my vote my friend

I’m voting for Dennis too! Let’s all make sure our friends and neighbors will too!

That you will. Thanks for all you do.

Do you support President Trump?

Dennis Smith for re-election! #GOTV

Thank you for the legislation you have authored and supported.

No

Kristin Bahner will do a better job of representing all Maple Grove residents, provide adequate support for our students and schools, and ensure we have the infrastructure and systems in place to attract employers of choice.

For all of the negative ads you’ve put out, Dennis Smith, I’m going to be voting for your competitor, Kristin Bahner. Honestly, every single time I opened my mailbox this last week, I got your hate mail. We don’t need that in Maple Grove. We’re better than that.

What were your doing speaking your politics to a group of high School football team??? Shame in you. You must be very desperate

we in Maple Grove are glad to have you standing up for the values that make MN great

your supporters holding your signs outside of polling places is wrong. not getting my vote that way.

We are grateful for your service and look forward to you ramping up the campaign in 2020
