I am proud of my strong stance on curbing crime in the City of Duluth. As your city councilor, I worked to put more police officers on the streets. As your Representative, I supported a bill that will make the sale of synthetic drugs a felony and it puts synthetic marijuana on the government's list of Schedule 1 drugs. At the legislature I will continue to advocate for more police officers and tougher penalties for criminals. I believe it is of the utmost importance that we work every day to protect our children and our community. As your legislator, I authored (or supported) bills that increased education of sexual violence in our schools' curriculum, changed laws that made sure criminals who engaged in repeated vehicle prowls were charged with a felony and made sure it was easy and safe for victims to report acts of sexual violence.
