Jobs, Opportunity, and the Environment

I will work to:

  • Accelerate the transition from our old, polluting economy to a new, clean economy

  • Help public institutions and businesses develop new technologies in wind, biomass, solar energy and green technologies; creating jobs in research, manufacturing, and construction

  • Expand incentives from government so businesses and communities make smart investments today that will pay off in the future and lower our utility bills immediately

  • Improve the energy efficiency of our new and existing homes, schools, businesses, government buildings, and places of worship

  • Increase education and re-training of workers towards a new green economy
Good jobs and the environment do not need to compete with each other.  Protecting and restoring the environment means creating new jobs, opportunities and healthier communities.
Minnesota’s great natural resources, rich soil, clean ground water, clean air, abundant woodlands, provide us with a high quality of life and are the source of many jobs.  As your legislator I will take seriously the obligation to restore damaged ecosystems and maintain our environment for the future.
Clean energy is now possible and is becoming the most cost-effective and common sense way to proceed. Minnesota can and should be at the forefront of research and job creation in the new “green technologies" revolution. From clean energy to green chemistry, the jobs of the future are being created today and every day.
