Vote Right. Vote Johnson

Think seriously about who you will be voting for on November 6th. What do you want to see happen in our State? How do you envision the State of Minnesota looking in the future? How you vote will decide these things.

Jeff Johnson and Donna Bergstrom are running for Governor and Lt. Governor. Let me give you a brief summary of their history. Johnson has been a lawyer, business owner, State Legislator and Hennepin County Commissioner. Bergstrom hails from Duluth and was a Lt. Colonel with a 20 year career in the Marine Corps Reserves. They have worked in the real world, have rich experiences and abilities to solve problems that are facing our State.

There are many challenges facing the next Administration. Hard to know where to start. One area is spending on programs. This past year massive fraud was revealed in DHS child care assistance programs, as high as $100 million a year of hard-earned taxpayer dollars. While Minnesotans are generally generous and helpful to those in need, this is unacceptable. We need to be assured that our tax dollars are being used as legislated and not misused through fraud! Met Council needs to be reevaluated and reined in. So many programs. So much to do!

Jeff Johnson promises to address these problems head on. His opponent wants to increase spending by offering "free" expanded healthcare for everyone. Johnson understands that leaders must prioritize so that the highest needs are met first. He also knows that what you are paying for with your tax dollars is NOT FREE! Johnson and Bergstrom will also oppose sanctuary cities and legalized marijuana. We do not need more crime and drugs coming into our State. Their Democrat opponent has supported this. Is this the future you want to see for Minnesota?

For a safer, saner, less taxed and more prosperous Minnesota, vote for Jeff Johnson and Donna Bergstrom on Nov. 6!
