Thank you for visiting our site. Senate District 48 DFL is made up of Southern Minnetonka and the majority of Eden Prairie. We bring together two vibrant communities with a diverse population. We believe it’s a great area to live and raise a family.
We also believe, as Sen. Wellstone said, “As free citizens in a political democracy we have a responsibility to be interested and involved in the affairs of the human community.” So, if you’re interested in learning more about what we believe in and are doing, please visit our site often. If you’re interested in getting involved in helping to move our communities, state and country forward to a progressive future, please contact us. There are lots of ways you can get involved. See you soon!
Many of us will be gathering with friends and family tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. It’s a special time, and I hope you will be able to enjoy this day set aside for gratitude with the people close to you.
Many of us have much to be thankful for this year. For my part, I’m thankful for the safety and happiness of my family, I’m thankful we live in such a wonderful community, and, among many other things, I’m thankful for our community members who have again placed in me the trust to represent their priorities for another term in St. Paul. I’m honored to go to work for you and your families.
Lastly, I want to encourage your support for our locally owned small businesses if you make shopping part of your holiday weekend plans. As a member of the House Small Business Caucus, I know small businesses are a crucial part of the engine that makes Minnesota’s economy run. “Small Business Saturday” started in 2010 as a way to promote small, locally owned and operated retailers during the holiday shopping season, and I encourage you to check in with our local merchants on Saturday, November 29th this year.
I’m pleased to continue my work on the bipartisan House Small Business Caucus, and I continue to welcome your input on new ways we can help locally owned businesses be successful and create more jobs.
I hope you experience the same joy this time of year brings my family, and I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!
We wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
We are thankful for the wonderful people here in Eden Prairie and Minnetonka who give so much of their time and treasure to help our candidates and the district.
