Issues

Campaign themes

Larson's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Functioning Government

  • Excerpt:"Nancy is an independent leader who will work with people of both parties to get our state moving and to start growing jobs again."

Strong Schools

  • Excerpt:"Nancy understands the importance of education and knows the state shouldn’t run on borrowed money. She would not have undermined education by voting to borrow more than two billion dollars from schools to pay for state government."

Lower Property Taxes

  • Excerpt:"Nancy will vote “no” on proposals that hurt our rural economy. She would not have voted to eliminate the Homestead Credit because it hit middle class property taxpayers the hardest and place the biggest tax burden on rural businesses and farms."

Taxes

  • Excerpt:"Cuts to property tax relief programs, including the elimination of Market Value Homestead Credit and cuts to Local Government Aid have disproportionately hurt greater Minnesota property owners."

Borrowing

  • Excerpt:"It is acceptable to borrow to build a bridge or new school building when you can expect the structure to last beyond the time it takes to pay off the debt. It is unacceptable to borrow money to run government, knowing that a child born today will be paying taxes 20 years from now to cover the cost of balancing this year’s state budget."
