With the recent storms and flooding that has impacted parts of Minnesota, I hope this email finds you doing well and your basements dry. I wanted to send along some updates from the past couple of weeks, as well as a link to information if you or a friend or relative has been impacted by the storms or flooding last week.
I posted to Facebook some helpful links and tips, and am happy to help assist in any way I can if there are constituents who have been impacted by flooding and need assistance working with or navigating the Department of Commerce Consumer Response Team website.
Dakota County residents are not currently eligible for disaster relief grants, but I will send along information if that changes.
Here are some updates from this past couple of weeks:
Apple Valley Town Hall
Thanks to everyone who took the time to attend last week’s Town Hall meeting with Rep. Tara Mack in Apple Valley. I appreciated the opportunity to update you on the 2014 session and enjoyed taking questions and hearing other feedback. If you weren't able to make it and would like to send along questions or comments, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my office at 651-296-4306.
Phoenix Group Home Visit
On Monday, June 23rd, I visited the Phoenix group home in Apple Valley, and had the chance to visit with residents and the staff that care for them on a daily basis. We talked about the increased funding for the workers that work in long-term and community-based care facilities, and how that funding will help stabilize and improve the quality of care at homes like the Phoenix Home. We also discussed ongoing challenges that they face and how the legislature can play a part in addressing those challenges. Thank you to the residents and staff for their warm hospitality!
