Standing up for veterans

As a veteran myself, I know how important it is to support the men and women serving our country, as well as their families. I’m vice chair of the Senate Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, where I’m proud to play a leading role in making sure our veterans and their families are receiving the benefits – and the recognition – they deserve. After the community of Montevideo waited more than a decade to be awarded state funding for its future veterans home, I am proud to have led the way in securing the funds during my first term in office. The facility will serve 72 area veterans when it is built.

Investing in our communities

I played a key role in securing funding for several worthwhile area projects that are financed through bonding, including:

  • Funds to mitigate the closure of the Benson Power facility
  • A new Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Services facility in Willmar
  • State funding for the future veterans home in Montevideo
  • An expansion of the Glacial Lakes Trail
  • Much needed infrastructure improvements near 100th Street SW in Appleton
  • Upgrades to Pioneer Public TV in Granite Falls
