Statement from the candidate:
Woodbury residents asked me to run. They are tired of the political bickering and they want a Legislature that completes its work. They realize that the budget deficit was not fixed. We are paying higher fees and property taxes. The cuts to school funding has eroded educational quality.Classrooms are overcrowded,parents are asked to pay more fees, and the projections for future deficits continue. Residents want a Representative that will use common sense in addressing fiscal issues and that gets the job done.

Len and his family haved lived in Woodbury for 26 years.They have three children. Len earned his BS and MS degrees in Education at the University of Wis.-River Falls. He taught in the South Washington County Schools for 30 years. He served in the MN House of Representatives from 1983-1990 and the MN Senate from 1990 thru 2002.
