Statement from the candidate:
I am running to provide the voters in 9A a real choice. There are many issues facing the state today. The major ones are 1)health care, 2) education (k-12 and higher ed.), 3) human rights, and, 4) increasing taxes on the rich and corporations to make them pay their fair share. Working people need a voice in the state house and I will provide that for them when I am elected.

I live in north Moorhead and have a 12-year-old son and a 20-year-old daughter. I am a teacher at North Dakota State University where I teach counseling. Previously I worked as a counselor in a number of community settings, was a community researcher and a union organizer.

On the Issues:
Should increased taxes be considered as part of a solution to a projected budget deficit?

Should gambling be expanded in Minnesota to generate new revenue for the state?

Should state funds — directly or indirectly — be used to build new sports facilities for the Twins and Vikings?

Do you support Gov Pawlenty's JOBZ zones program?

Should K-12 spending in Minnesota be curtailed in order to balance a projected budget deficit?

Should a constitutional amendment be presented to voters that would ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota?

Should the state spend money for expanding mass transit options in Minnesota?

Should there be additional restrictions on abortion in Minnesota?

Should the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program, which seeks to protect wildlife habitat and wetlands by paying farmers for taking marginal lands out of agriculture production, be supported?

Should the state's subsidized health care program be trimmed in order to reduce a projected budget deficit?
