of District 10A
that the election results are known, I want to thank
all my constituents in District 10A.

number one priority will be to make sure you can
continue to count on Representative Ward to make
sure that your voices, needs and desires are heard
at the State Capitol.
You can count on me to “walk the walk, not
just talk the talk.”
I expect each day of the next two years to bring new
challenges, excitement, joy, and sometimes

to develop a long term, stable and balanced budget.
The challenge will be to accomplish this without
destroying the things that make Minnesota a great

bi-partisan approach this can be done. Together we
will make a difference. Together, we will “Move
