Letter: Endorsing Jamie Becker-Finn for House District 42B

To the Editor:

 

Jamie Becker-Finn is running for the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 42B, which includes Little Canada, Vadnais Heights, Gem Lake, and portions of Shoreview and Roseville. Jamie’s life experiences have helped her develop the skills necessary to be effective in our state legislature and a strong voice for Minnesota families. She currently works as an Assistant Hennepin County Attorney at the Domestic Abuse Service Center, bringing diverse groups of people together to work for justice: crime victims, their advocates, law enforcement, and other criminal justice professionals. She has also worked as a Legislative Assistant at the Minnesota House of Representatives, prior to pursuing her law degree. This experience helped familiarize Jamie with the workings of the legislature, and she has already begun to form working relationships with legislators from across the state.

Key issues for Jamie include environmental protection, education, transportation, and mental health. She was raised in northern Minnesota, and has spent her adult life in the Twin Cities, so she has an appreciation of both rural and urban concerns. And as a mother, she has a vested interest in Minnesota’s educational system, and is committed to pre-K programming, K-12, and affordable postsecondary education.

Jamie is a motivated, hard-working individual possessing qualities and work experiences that make her well-suited to represent our district. Check out her website www.becker-finn.org. Let’s give her our support.
