Our Campaign

Shakopee and Jackson Township are growing, evolving, and thriving with an incredible mix of rural, urban, and suburban culture. I am running for the Minnesota House District 54A seat to represent our values in St Paul.

At the Legislature, I want to continue working for you. I want to help focus our state government on the future for all of us and our next generations. To accomplish this, our State government must give power back to local governments. This is where the best decisions can be made— closest to the people. Local entities must have a voice on policy and how to best spend our hard-earned dollars.

Brad, his wife Katy, their two children (Jean and Ila), dog Scout, and backyard chickens have lived in Shakopee since 2003.
