- Excerpt:"It is in our best interest to make sure college is a viable option to all interested students. Whether it be to learn a skill or begin the journey toward a professional career, getting advanced education makes financial sense for the students and our state."
- Excerpt:"Job growth in rural Minnesota requires advancement of new and emerging technology like bio-science and alternative energy. Keeping our schools strong, our health care facilities nearby, and our transportation infrastructure safe will aid our rural economy."
- Excerpt:"We should continue to encourage the use of alternative sources of energy, and be creative as we solve our energy problems. More jobs can be created in the green energy field, and we must use financial resources to encourage new strategies and initiatives."
- Excerpt:"We each must be responsible for making good choices and personal decisions that positively impact our own health. We should expect government to help keep costs affordable, care facilities accessible, and options available to provide our families and ourselves with good medical care."
