I grew up in St. Anthony and graduated from St. Anthony Village High School. My parents moved here in 1977 when I was 2 for the same reason my wife and I did: the schools. It's an amazing testament to this community and St. Anthony-New Brighton School District that 37 years later, people still live here and fight to move into the school district for the exact same reason.
It has been a pleasure to work with our current City Council. We share a respect for each other and for opinions that might differ from our own. We all work together to develop consensus on critical issues and to compromise when necessary.
I attend the same church as Cory Springhorn and his family.Cory is kind, sincere,hard working,caring and fair minded.I have listened to his video on why he wants to serve on the Shoreview City Council and I believe he would be an excellent choice.
Too often how much you make depends on your gender. In 2014, Connie Bernardy and other DFL lawmakers took action. They stood up for working women and all workers by passing the Women's Economic Security Act.
I think it's great that our schools were recently paid back all the money that the state borrowed from them. It's also great that Kindergarten kids are now going to school for full days. It's great to know that the Highway 96 bridge over 35W is going to replaced ahead of schedule and will be wider and safer.
I want our children to have an education that will make them competitive in the global market. That's why I was glad to learn that the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation rated Minnesota as one of only 10 states to receive the grade of A for K-12 Educational Effectiveness.
