After serving 25 years on the Blue Earth County Board of Commissioners and eight years as Rural Development State Director under President Obama, my passion for getting to know and represent the needs of rural communities continues to grow. Armed with this knowledge and drive, I look forward to helping build back a better rural America under President Biden’s leadership.

Last week, President Biden used his first State of the Union address to talk about where our country has been and where we are going.
