To the Editor,

Governor Walz’s lockdown orders have hurt our local communities. Schools, small businesses and many others suffered financial losses, struggled with mental health and tried to recover from the damaging decisions made by Governor Walz.

When Jordan Rasmusson started in the Minnesota House in 2021, he immediately went to work and opposed Governor Walz’s lockdown orders. He worked on legislation and voted to end Governor Walz’s emergency powers.  Because of the work of new legislators like Jordan Rasmusson, in 2021 they forced Governor Walz to end the peacetime emergency.

That’s why I will vote for Jordan Rasmusson for State Senate on Tuesday, August 9.
