I am delighted to see that Julie Bunn is running for State Senate in the new District 39. After watching the political climate in Wisconsin become more and more divisive, it is good to know we have candidates in Minnesota who will be able to forge a working relationship with legislators on both sides of the aisle.
Julie has proven her ability to get things done at the state level by crafting sound fiscal and tax policy. She has also been a champion for local projects.
Julie has demonstrated her legislative leadership: she was chief author of legislation passed to clean up a local landfill in Lake Elmo, and she crafted nationally-recognized legislation to set up bio-monitoring health tracking studies of PFC pollution. Julie also authored or co-authored legislation such as the Stillwater levy project, Bayport storm sewer diversion and security and lighting upgrade project at the OPH Correctional Facility.
We need leaders like Julie Bunn who have experience, are willing to work hard in our behalf, and know how to get things done.
