Hello and welcome to my “In Touch” profile. By using this webpage, it is my hope that you
will be able to get a better understanding of who I am as both a senator and a
member of the Twin Cities community. By
utilizing the hyperlinks on the left-hand side of the screen you can access my
extended biography, issues of special significance to me, my bi-weekly
e-newsletter, current legislative reports, as well as important media and
The most helpful and important information that is
accessible on the “In Touch” profile can be found under the ‘Communicate’
sub-heading. There, you will be able to
find current information that is consistently updated for your benefit.
Update’ allows you to view my bi-weekly e-newsletter which outlines the
session’s progression, the status of my bills, and supplemental information
about community events and ways to get involved in Minnesota’s
vibrant political scene
includes comprehensive updates on legislative committee activity each week of
the session from agriculture to wind energy
In addition to these options, there are links that will
allow you to view and listen
to media clips from the Capitol.
Media clips provide links to live coverage of the legislature at work as
well as past senate floor sessions and committee hearings. These media links should help you remain
informed on the everyday happenings at the Capitol. I have also provided links
to government websites ranging from local city and county
websites to the U.S. Congress and
the White House.
While the “In Touch” profile is a relatively new option on
the Senate website, it is evolving into a good resource for voters to gain a
better understanding of what goes on at the Capitol while encouraging all
legislators to be more accountable to their districts.
