I am a firm believer in citizen engagement in government. County government plays a significant role in people’s lives that often goes unnoticed. County policies are visible in amenities like our public libraries, county roads, and regional parks. However, issues such as safe drinking water, affordable housing, public health, disability services, and elder care are all heavily influenced by county leadership. I’m running to ensure the voices of the communities of Eagan, Mendota, Mendota Heights, and Lilydale are reflected in our county government.
