I am an active member of Central Minnesota Warrior to Citizen and Yellow Ribbon Community initiatives. These organizations work to coordinate community resources for members of the military before, during and after their deployment. This includes assisting their families. Nine Central Minnesota communities, in partnership with government, educational institutions and non-profit organizations, have set up a resource network and outreach program to support service members and their families. These cities include: Sartell, Sauk Rapids, St. Cloud, Waite Park, St. Joseph, St. Augusta, Cold Spring, Richmond and Rockville.
As a member of the Minnesota House, I will continue working to support our troops and veterans.
