Veterans Day

Wednesday, November 9, 2022

Dear Neighbors,

Now that the election season is over I will resume my regular updates. Thank you to the residents of district 53B for trusting me to represent them at the Capitol. I look forward to representing this new district. To all of my 52A constituents, I want to express my deep gratitude for the honor of serving you over these years, it has been the experience of a lifetime!

The DFL maintained control of the House so my role at the Capitol will remain largely the same, though with DFL control of the Senate I hope to see many of our district’s priorities passed into law.
