I’m proud to have been endorsed this month by the DFL Party and Minnesota Council 5 of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).

It’s truly humbling to be the DFL–endorsed candidate in Senate District 44. I’m so grateful for all the support I’ve received from friends, family, elected delegates, and local party officials, and am honored to be part of an outstanding slate of candidates across the state who will flip the Senate to a DFL majority in November and work hard to build a better future for all Minnesotans.

AFSCME Minnesota Council 5 is a union of more than 43,000 public service workers in Minnesota. I’ve worked with many AFSCME members on infrastructure projects throughout my engineering career and know the importance and dignity of work that improves and sustains our communities. I will always fight for public employees.
