LETTER: There’s plenty to do at the Capitol this year

To the Editor:

The legislative session starts Feb. 20 and there’s a lot to be done this year. Minnesota’s infrastructure, including water systems, public buildings, bridges and dams, is in need of repair, so it’s important we pass a robust public infrastructure bill. Feel free to contact my office and let me know what you’d like to see done this session.

In my role as DFL-lead on the Transportation and Regional Governance Policy Committee, I’ll continue working on improving our transportation for people of all ages and abilities, no matter how they choose to travel. Also, being a member of the Higher Education and Career Readiness Committee, I’ll strive to ensure post-secondary education is within reach of all students — be it at a four-year, two-year or trades program. I’ll also strive to reduce the burden of student debt.

It’s an honor to represent you at the Capitol and I’d like to thank the residents of Fridley, New Brighton and Spring Lake Park for the opportunity to serve our community. As your voice on state issues, I’ll continue to work to bring people together and to ensure the people of our community have the opportunity to succeed. That means everyone has access to a quality education, a job that rewards hard work with fair pay, and a secure retirement.

If there is any way I can be of assistance to you or if you have input on any legislative matter, please give me a call at 651-296-5510 or email me at rep.connie.bernardy@house.mn.

Rep. Connie Bernardy, District 41A
