We are one month in to the 2011 legislative session. It’s been invigorating to get back to the State Capitol to represent our community and to work on the important challenges facing our state.
There is a lot at stake this session. We need to address a record $6.2 billion budget deficit and there are still over 200,000 Minnesotans out of work. My promise to you is that I will vigorously fight for fair solutions that raise up all Minnesotans. My challenge for you is to get involved. Talk with your neighbors, families and me about the concerns and ideas you have to make our community better. To help us both hold up our ends of the bargain, I will continue to provide regular updates in the newspaper, with e-mail newsletters, and on twitter and facebook so that you can track the action at the State Capitol and make your voice heard.
