Campaign themes

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

Where does our money go?

  • Excerpt:"We need to develop strategies that support education and health care but in simpler and more effective ways. Simply growing government and continued support of state-funded programs without efficiencies places our entire future at risk."


  • Excerpt:"We need to restructure our approach so that the private market is rewarded to deliver high quality care and better pricing. The private market knows that excellence--the best care at the lowest cost--arises when the entire ecosystem is trained and educated to focus on value."

Job Creation / Economic Growth

  • Excerpt:"We need to develop policies that help create jobs and promote economic development in the great state of Minnesota. As the number of good paying local jobs in Minnesota increase, so does our quality of life."

Fiscal Accountability

  • Excerpt:"This was the result of less government spending and better managing our revenues and investments. Let's invest in government reforms that result in savings for taxpayers and improved services throughout the state. We have work to do!"


  • Excerpt:"Education is essential to competitiveness and preparing generations for responsible citizenship in a free society. I will work to cut costly mandates on our schools, advocate for more local control, work to have a fair and equitable funding model for all schools. Today's students are tomorrow's future."
