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!

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

Thank you for being our voice these past 4 years!

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!

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.

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

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

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

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

Great job these past 4 years. Thank you!

Thank you for your service, sir!

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.

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

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

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.

This state has gone to hell!!

Thanks for your service. You represented our district well!

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

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

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

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

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 representing us!

Honored to receive the endorsement of Al Madsen, former longtime City Administrator of Maple Grove.

One of the reasons I hope to continue to represent Maple Grove and Osseo is because it gives me the opportunity to work together with leaders like Al. Thanks for your support!

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 !

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

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

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 have my vote, Dennis!

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

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

Do you support President Trump?

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.

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.

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

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

Thank you for the legislation you have authored and supported.

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.

Dennis Smith for re-election! #GOTV

You already know you have my vote my friend

No

"Who is this guy they will ask me so what I'll do is I'll put my last name on a sweatshirt so the kids voting remember gotta make it red as well so it pops out and hits deep subconsciously speaking. Woman will love it especially white woman"

Go Kristen Bahner! Flip 34B!
