YOUR 53B REPRESENTATIVE

Did you know anyone can vote by mail in Minnesota? In fact, over 350,000 Minnesotans have already requested their ballot to vote by mail. Have you? Visit the Ballot page to request your mail-in ballot and learn more about voting by mail. Let's keep our democracy healthy and our community too.
Working for You
Tough times? You bet, but I'm convinced we can find ways to improve the lives of all Minnesotans and I've been working to do that for the past two years. My bills have already taken steps to
- Protect our water from "forever chemicals"
- Offer a new "Minnesota Miracle" to pay for our schools
- Provide teachers and students with essential economic education
- Improve housing for a group of disabled citizens
- Support post-secondary enrollment options for students
Your Advocate in the Legislature, A Resource for the Community
In these unique and difficult times it's essential that we work together to make sure every Minnesotan and every American has the resources they need to stay safe, healthy and solvent. I'm working to do that every day in the legislature but many need more immediate help with child care, putting food on the table or paying rent. To help with this we've created a Community Resources page where you can find information and links to local resources for assistance.
A Note From Steve
I admit that the Capitol takes my breath away every time I walk through its hallways. Its architecture, the painting and design, the House and Senate chambers, and the rotunda—it’s a pretty remarkable place.
The ambitions of democracy that inspired those who imagined and built the Capitol deserve our best effort to make government work for all of us—whatever the circumstance. These days our resolve and experience are facing daunting circumstances.
This Spring season has been difficult for all of us. We’ve all been asked to make sacrifices.
Our work at the legislature has taken a detour while we deal with this crisis of public health. But I haven’t put other important issues aside--clean water, innovative schools, sound and progressive tax policy, and programs that protect this globe we all share.
Some of that will be delayed while our days are occupied meeting this crisis. I’m asking for your support and your vote now so I can return to the House in January and join the remarkable people there to make government work for all of us.
The Capitol building is still brilliant at night. The golden Quadriga, the marble statues, the pillars surrounding the dome beneath its cupola are all there, lit against the dark sky. I want to work with you to meet the challenge of these dark times, to build a strong and confident future together.
