Let's Make a Difference!
For the last 26 years, this district has been represented by Democrat Collin Peterson. After his cumulative 40 years in office, I would like to thank Mr. Peterson for his service and suggest new blood in Washington. It is time for a new voice in Congress that reflects our values and will work to fix the broken institution of which Collin has too long been a part.
Right now, the 7th District needs a representative in Congress who can make informed decisions about issues with a global impact using good old-fashioned Minnesotan common sense. My experiences abroad in Russia and Asia have given me unique insight on issues we face including Trade, ISIS, Immigration and many others. The knowledge and experience I have gained will allow us to be a part of the ongoing debates in Washington on the best way to preserve our Nation and advance our economy. Many here in western Minnesota feel they have no voice about who enters their cities and how. As your representative, I will push for sensible policies that will give us confidence we are secure at home and abroad.
Beyond the international challenges confronting us, we need a fresh perspective to tackle local issues of economic stability and growth in the 38 counties that make up the 7th Congressional District.
Our small business owners are overburdened with federal regulations. Our children are getting a half-baked taste of Common Core (Minnesota didn't adopt it, but curriculum writers now produce programs to meet those national standards). Obamacare and bleak job prospects are crushing the spirits of young families with big dreams. Seniors are alienated by today's technological world, and their wisdom is untapped. As your representative, I will work to ensure the taxes we pay to the federal government come back to where they are needed most in our communities. I will vote to repeal Obamacare and onerous regulations, bridge the generational gap to embrace innovation while not abandoning our values and virtues.
The people in the 7th Congressional District have strong opinions about what is going on in our country and our world, and they deserve to be heard in Congress. The representative from this district needs to be someone who can speak for this generation, with the experience necessary to make good decisions and possessing the passion to create solutions for future generations.
As a trained journalist, small business owner and former pastor, I offer a fresh perspective and a new voice for our community. As a Republican, I can work with the majority party to get things accomplished. Send me to Washington so we can fix what has been broken by those already there.
I ask for your vote this November. Let's make a real difference in America. Thank you!
