Yesterday, I attended ProAct’s legislative panel to discuss disability services issues, including: funding for day training programs, choices for those with disabilities, wages for direct care staff, and transportation funding needs. Thank you to everyone who came and for sharing your stories and concerns! I will continue to advocate on your behalf at the Capitol.
High School Page Program
Applications for the 2018 Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program have now been mailed to our local schools. I encourage any high school junior interested in the political process to apply.
Throughout the week-long program, pages will assist state representatives and staff in the House Chamber during session, observe how committees are conducted, meet individually with their local state representative, and learn how legislation moves through the political process. This program also gives students the opportunity to meet with constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.
To learn more and to apply, visit: www.house.leg.state.mn.us/edprog/app.pdf.

Warrior 196 Memorial 5K
The Warrior 196 Memorial 5K will be held Saturday, September 30th from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Eastview High School. Established in 2013, the Warrior 196 Leadership Foundation has been able to provide nearly $20,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors who attended either Rosemount, Apple Valley, Eagan, or Eastview High Schools. These scholarships honor five ISD 196 alumni who gave their lives fighting overseas: Nathanael Doring (AVHS/1993), Daniel Olsen (EHS/2005), Benjamin Kopp (RHS/2006), Christopher Goeke (AVHS/2004), and Andrew Wilfahrt (RHS/1997).

Simply use the same contact information for my office below, and we will find a time and place to meet in our community, instead of traveling all the way to Saint Paul!
