Campaign themes

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


  • Excerpt:"My plan for the economy involves phasing out the business property tax to allow businesses right here in District 19B to invest in their own business by expanding, hiring new employees, providing much needed wage increases, and meeting the ever changing demands of our local population."


  • Excerpt:"Local families know what is best for their children and I will fight further federal initiatives that circumvent those who know what their children need best, their parents."

Veterans Benefits

  • Excerpt:"They fought for us, and they deserve someone who will fight for them in the Minnesota House of Representatives. As a veteran, I am dedicated to fighting for policies that fulfill the promises that we have made to our veterans who signed on that dotted line to put country in front of personal gains."


  • Excerpt:"I am 100% Pro-Life and believe that life begins at conception. I will fight for policies that protect the unborn while fighting against any form of tax payer funding of abortion."
