Statement from the candidate:
My campaign slogan is "For Our Fair Share." As an independent thinking moderate Democrat I want to be part of the decision making matrix to improve the quality of life for the citizens of District 48A. We pay taxes and I want part of those tax payments to come back to our school districts in Elk River and ISD 15. I want to improve the economy, improve roads, and make health care accessible and affordable for all citizens .
