Rebuilding America and the Middle Class
As a small business owner, Rick knows what it takes to create good-paying jobs. Rick understands that to rebuild the middle class we’ve got to raise the minimum wage to a living wage. We must end nation-building abroad and focus on paying down our deficit, so we can invest in our communities infrastructure, health, and education.
Education for America’s Future
As a former teacher and proud member of the MEA (now Education Minnesota), Rick’s spent a lifetime fighting to expand early childhood education initiatives, so every child will be ready to meet their full potential. Rick will keep working to fully fund elementary and secondary education, and to supply every student and school with the 21st-century technology and resources necessary to succeed.
