Governor Walz has called a special session for Monday, July 13. Among the issues to be discussed include the governor’s ongoing emergency powers, and COVID-related measures to ensure the health and safety of Minnesotans.

My priorities include passage of the PROMISE Act to rebuild after the civil unrest. We will also continue to push for passage of police accountability measures.

E-Updates will temporarily end soon

During an election period, legislators cannot use state resources for unsolicited communications because it might create an unfair advantage. While these updates will temporarily come to an end, you can still follow me on my legislative Facebook page. I am still available to help with the state-level problems and discuss issues important to our community, so continue to reach out with any input, ideas. I value hearing from you, so please don’t hesitate to email me at or  call (651) 296-4219 any time.

Thank you for the privilege of serving District 60A in the legislature.
