Statement:
Since leaving the State Senate in 2012, I founded and was the director at Life Prep Academy, a school and dorm for homeless teens. Unfortunately, LPA had to close its doors in July of 2021, because of the hardships brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. We were funded by donations and run by volunteers. I am frustrated with how things are in Minnesota (and the country) right now, and felt compelled to once again get involved by running for office. Families are facing so many struggles: economic difficulties, rise in crime, education systems not focusing on academics, government taking away decision-making from parents.
