Summer 2016: I am running for the MN House of Representative seat for district 24A -- Owatonna, Waseca and the townships between.
I will be a strong voice for families, schools, homeowners, farmers and small businesses, too. I have convictions to be sure; but I believe the job of a state lawmaker is to listen to the voices of his or her district. That means if its important to you, it will be my job to make it important to me -- regardless of your party affiliation, status or whether you're a lot like me or totally different.
I am not naive -- I know there are powerful special interest groups that don't particularly care what our district wants or needs; but I owe no allegiance to anyone but my own principles and the views of District 24A people like you.
I have taught in public and private schools for 42 years; directed church choirs for almost as long; more importantly I directed five children through adulthood in Owatonna and I basically love this area. And I have been fortunate enough to have been presented with a few awards and if you can't mention them here ... where can you? Owatonna Businesswoman of the Year, Little Theatre Hall of Fame, and my kid's think I'm ok, too.
