My mission and vision

These are the areas of responsibility that I will concentrate on.

Promoting Business

I will work to make sure our community, and state, has a Business Friendly environment. We need more job opportunities and lower prices for consumers. The government needs to get out of the way and let our small businesses grow. Our tax policy is out of step with our neighboring states making Minnesota less competitive.

Healthcare

We must encourage a patient-centered health care marketplace with price transparency to lower the cost of healthcare for families and small business owners.

Smart Expansion

We must consider how to plan for more residents. We are expanding, and we have to plan for this expansion. Blaine and Lexington should be communities that are a sought-after place to live. That means better, more well maintained roads, not trains. This means addressing the needs of Highway 65, our vital link between the Twin Cities and our neighborhoods.

Protecting Life

I am Pro-Life, and this begins with acknowledging the sanctity of birth as well as working across all the spectrums of our community to foster dignity, respect, and safety. I believe that life begins at conception, and that children should have personhood.

Education

We all experienced the sudden jolt of having to bring our children home and support them during this extended period of distance learning foisted on us. We need to take the lessons learned and work to protect our children.

Minnesota's Budget

As a business leader I know how to balance a budget and read a P&L. Minnesota does not have a revenue problem, we have a tax problem. Minnesota collects more taxes than it should, and the answer is not to find “creative ways” to spend your money, we need to permanently decrease the tax burden on every Minnesota tax payer. We need long term solutions, not gimmicks.

Pro Second Amendment

I have been a permit to carry instructor for 17 years. I am a life member in the NRA and MN Gun Owners Caucus. My wife and children are life members in the NRA. I am a DNR firearms safety instructor. I don’t just talk about being Pro-2A, I live it and have spread the message to over 4000 students.

Respect for our Retirees

Minnesotans who have worked their whole lives, and paid taxes and Social Security, should be able to retire here, where their children and grandchildren are. Minnesota is only 1 of 12 states that tax Social Security when it is paid out. I will work to eliminate this tax.
