Just over 80 days left before the general election and we are gearing up for an interesting and challenging schedule. Just a couple of parades left, 13 down, and several meet and greets and interviews to go. Janice and I are meeting a lot of new people and experiencing the fun times that each community festival offers. If anyone has questions, concerns and or would just like to visit about issues concerning the State, stop by or give me a call. As is always the case, my door is open and I would appreciate knowing what concerns all of you and any constructive way to improve Minnesota’s quality of life, education system, business climate, tax structure, value added agriculture, including renewables as well as ways to promote job growth. There are lot’s of things we can get done if we elect people who are willing to work together for the good of the State.
