I support Heather because I believe that she is the voice that Edina needs. As a student at Edina High School who comes from a low-income household, I often feel like an outsider among my peers. I see opportunities that others take advantage of pass me by due to cost and my lack of family connections. I feel that the current leadership for our region doesn’t give needed attention to those within our city who are near the poverty line. Heather is the answer.
Raised by a single, working mother in North Minneapolis, Heather has the strength, empathetic perspective, and determination that can represent me and my family in the State House of Representatives. Furthermore, as a college-bound Senior, I know that I can trust Heather’s commitment to quality education for all, no matter their circumstances, to help me on my path to college.
