What do you think is most on the minds of people in your district?
Safe and plentiful drinking water, and safe, comprehensive, quality transportation and trail options. Also affordable housing that helps support our robust economy and growing population.
What will be your priority focus area in 2019?
I would like to focus on transportation and trails needs for work, recreation and school. And I would like to make sure that clean water for everyone continues to be something we all count on. I also would like to see if there are additional opportunities for safe, quality investments in our region.
What are the biggest changes you would you like to see in the Twin Cities region by 2040?
I would like to explore all options for transportation including growing our fleet of electric buses. I would like to see preservation of quality farmland, pristine parks and lakes, and affordable sustainable housing.
More personally, what do you like to do when you’re not working?
I like to spend time in nature: hiking in the woods, watching waterfalls and rivers, and looking at birds and animals. I play softball, tennis and pickleball. I also have a passion for visiting restaurants, breweries and wineries, and trying new foods and beverages. I enjoy watching sports and listening to music. I am also a museum and historical site junkie with a wide variety of interests.
