Much was accomplished in 2021 to improve the lives of many Minnesotans.
The Work Continues
Together there is so much more we can do in 2022!
I’m excited to be running for a second term in the Minnesota House of Representatives as the DFL endorsed candidate in the newly established House District 52A, which includes western Eagan and northern Burnsville. I’m committed to continuing my service to the community where I raised my kids, volunteered in our ISD 196 schools, and served on youth athletic boards. My roots in our community are deep, and I’m thrilled to ask the people of our new district for their support.
Serving in the Minnesota House of Representatives is a great honor, and the past two years have been a genuine highlight of my life. I’ve had the privilege of working on policy that will help people in truly profound ways, like making health care affordable and available to all, preventing homelessness, improving working conditions for people with disabilities, and making sure we act as responsible stewards of our state’s resources. Across the board, my focus is on racial and social equity and climate sustainability.
And my very deep appreciation to all the people in District 51B. You took a chance on me and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be serving you today in the Legislature. As I take this next step, I know I do so with many new friends.

The PCR (Political Contribution Refund) program is a great way to support Liz at no cost to you!
You can give $50 per year ($100 per couple) to a candidate in Minnesota and the State will refund this to you.
This program is in place to work against corporate funding of campaigns. It ensures that everyone has a chance to contribute to free and fair elections.
Here’s how it works:

Healthcare. We must rein in prescription drug costs and provide everyone with affordable healthcare during the pandemic and beyond.
Education. We must provide our schools the resources they need to be effective and safe for our students, families, and educators.
Housing. We must build healthier
communities, even in hard times, with access to safe and affordable housing.
Environment. We need real, clean energy solutions to the climate crisis and new steps to protect water quality.
Equity. We must work hard to end social and economic discrimination by fighting for equity in employment, housing, health care, education, and criminal justice.
Safety. We must bring people together to achieve systemic reform that reconnects police with their communities and enables and empowers them to keep everyone in every community safe.
Schools. We must address structural racism in our schools, including funding, discipline, and staffing practices that contribute to the opportunity gap and harm so many Black and brown children.
Justice. We must work to eliminate inequality in the criminal justice system.
Experience. With three decades in companies large and small as a researcher, project lead, and coach, Liz understands today’s business needs.
Opportunity. We need a strong state focus on attracting and retaining jobs and workers, as well as providing the healthcare and housing families need.
Connections. We must connect every household and business with high-speed broadband to thrive in the new, global economy.
Climate. The climate crisis requires that we champion clean energy solutions to power the economy of the future.
