Statement:
Never have I thought I’d be running for public office. Why have I decided to run now? You might ask. I do believe that sometimes the best candidates to run for office are often the ones who don’t want to run. We feel compelled to run because we can no longer stand by on the sidelines and watch the country that we love fall into socialism/communism. I don't want to one day tell our children or our grandchildren how America was once a free country and I didn't fight my hardest to keep her free. That’s why I decided to run for state house in MN. I will fight to defend your constitutional rights, so freedom will prevail over this land.
