“My name is Emily. I am a mother, wife, student, and a nurse for the Minnesota Dept. of Corrections. I am running for office because I am like you. I am sick of the voices our children are hearing from our representatives. We are paying an ethical and financial cost for the new normal of dysfunction and litigation for harassment and power grabs within the legislature.
Yes I have no experience in politics, but I do have experience in common sense and hard work. I would like to remind you that every single person in our legislature had no experience at some point. No I do not come from a large, wealthy, politically connected family rife with self interest and crony inside tracts. If you are like me, you are sick of all that too.
I am not on team red or team blue. I am not against team red or team blue. I am on team Minnesota. It’s time we had some representatives like that too.”
