To the Editor:
I want to take the opportunity to thank the residents of Crystal, Golden Valley, and Robbinsdale for re-electing me to represent you in the Minnesota House of Representatives. With the change in leadership at the Legislature I've been appointed Chairman of the House Finance Committee, the panel that's responsible for the state budget. Even with the new leadership position, your interests and the interests of our communities will continue to be my top priority at the Capitol.
It's clear that an overwhelming majority of Minnesotans want their elected officials to focus on issues affecting all of us. Minnesotans want us to put the brakes on excessive property tax increases, give local schools the resources they need to educate our children, make health care more affordable for everyone, improve our transportation system, and support renewable energy.
As always, if you have any comments or questions about legislative issues you can contact me at my Capitol Office at 651-296-4255 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
