community infrastructure including affordable housing, utility systems, transportation and broadband - we are making communities stronger.  By increasing County Program Aid, School Aid, and Local Government Aid, local property taxes will be reduced. 
I was proud to partner with Senator Frentz to pass legislation to acquire the funding to pay for a 4 lane expansion of Highway 14 from Nicollet to New Ulm. We now are in a position to finally finish the highway from Nicollet to Rochester, greatly improving the safety and access from end to end.

  • Investment in broadband internet

  • Increase to LGA & CPA to reduce local property tax burden

  • Increase affordable housing options by working together with regional partners

  • Prioritizing drinking and sewage systems in future bonding legislation
