A wide variety of issues come before the Legislature each session. Some can be anticipated, but others cannot. It is important for our legislators to bring a variety of experience and viewpoints to this work. On any issue, legislators should be prepared to understand the facts, hear multiple viewpoints, weigh competing factors, and always keep the good of the people of Minnesota in mind.
Many key issues were discussed at the 2012 candidate forums. To hear me discuss these issues more, watch the candidate forums put on by the League of Women Voters and the Chamber of Commerce. Just click here, scroll down to "Candidate Forums" and click the two icons for District 42 to play the videos (requires Flash).
