Jobs and Environment
Mining and environmental stewardship can co-exist. We can have both. Family-sustaining jobs are our bread and butter and the mining industry is our economic engine. We need to build from our strengths by supporting our natural resource economy and encouraging technology, innovation, and diversification to create new opportunities. I will advocate for and create high-quality jobs while protecting our environment.
Healthy Rural Communities
From Virginia to Twig, we need a strong and courageous voice for our region. Whether it is investing in education for our kids, affordable healthcare for all, making sure we have high speed internet access, or prioritizing our seniors and retirees, it is about having the right person who knows the region in St. Paul carrying our message forward with passion and conviction.
