Happy Independence Day

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

Greetings from St. Paul,

I want to wish a very Happy Independence Day to all! Our nation’s founders fought for our rights, liberties, and freedoms we enjoy today. For that, I’m extremely thankful.

They also worked to create a limited government FOR the people, not the other way around. That’s one principle I’ve tried to reflect in my work in St. Paul. I believe our citizens know what’s best for them and their families, and they should be able to make these basic decisions without unnecessary influence from our governments. This was how many of our founding leaders viewed government, and I believe they were correct in thinking that putting freedom and liberty in the hands of the people is what helps our country flourish.

Again, have a great Independence Day!
