Consider your support ~

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This next Tuesday, September 28, marks just five weeks until Election Day on November 2nd – will you help me finish strong?

Now is the time: Money matters. Please give. Let’s get a new voice to the ND State Legislature.

Born and raised in Fargo I have served the City of Fargo with Fargo Mayors, Bruce Furness and Dennis Walaker since 1996. I decided to run for the ND House of Representatives because I’m ready to take my service to elected office. I know the people of my district, I know the issues that matter to them and most importantly I know what I stand for when it comes to the people of my district and of North Dakota: Accountable public service, Opportunity for all North Dakotans and Strong Leadership for working families.

Running for the legislature allows me do more for the people of my district and my state. In ND, politics is not so much political as personal, and my background as a young professional, a Native American and long-time public servant will bring a much needed perspective to the decision making table of our state government.  I want to work to pass legislation that will further the major agenda of the constituents in my district and of most North Dakotans; how we can earn a decent living and how we can raise our children successfully.

I’m also running to deliver a message that North Dakota is more progressive than those outside our state can begin to imagine. We need to start reflecting our progressive values within our state legislature, which means electing more women, young people and people of color.

If I became a representative, my biggest legislative priorities would be:

Infrastructure projects.  If our state does not provide quality roads, safe water systems, permanent flood-protection, and expanded internet and broadband services, we falter and fall behind.  By strengthening our state’s overall infrastructure with sound projects and investments, we attract new development and maintain our position as a successful state in this time of economic uncertainty.

We tackle the same issue every election – how can we better people’s lives?  Specifically, in north Fargo’s District 45, high priorities include long-term flood control as well as ensuring that NDSU and the Research and Technology Park remain beacons of quality education and innovation.  There is the ever-rising concern of local property taxes rates and inadequately funded K-12 schools.  North Fargo has a diverse population, and serving District 45 effectively presents unique opportunities and challenges.  As a state we need to ensure to the people of North Dakota that we can make decisions that will build economy, create and maintain good jobs and have support children and families.

With just over 5 weeks to go, please give to Friends of Prairie Rose, and help me finish strong.

Your contributions will allow me to reach and engage voters in a meaningful way.

Many thanks for your support and generosity.

In service and solidarity ~
