BPOU Regional Leader- Delegate.

I am a lifelong Minnesotan.  After many years of working in the real world, I have decided to run for the Minnesota House in District 15B.  I am running not to become a politician, but to fix problems affecting all of us:  irresponsible spending of tax dollars, over-regulation by government, and officials not listening to or standing up for the people who elected them.
 
State Government has certain core functions:  roads and bridges, education, and care for the vulnerable.  All spending must be prioritized so that the core functions are funded before anything else.  I will scrutinize all spending, and will fight to reform business in the legislature so that spending is done as stand-alone bills and not stuffed into larger bills that would not pass on their own merit.
 
As your representative, I will look at all bills through the lens of the Constitution.  If a bill negatively impacts Life or Liberty, I will vote NO.
 
I am fiercely pro-life, pro-family, and pro-Second Amendment.  I am also pro-Tenth Amendment, which means I believe in state sovereignty against unconstitutional infringements by the federal government.  The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a prime example of unconstitutional federal over-reach (despite the 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court).
 
I would be honored to have your support and vote to send me to St. Paul to represent your interests and fight for your rights.
