Thank you for the privilege of serving you in the Minnesota Legislature! It is a wonderful community to serve!
In the legislative session just concluding, I've worked on a number of issues important to this district including water supply and water quality, road funding for small cities, protection of Centennial firefighters' pensions, Met Council accountability and transparency, and literacy policies that assist children with dyslexia. At the legislature, I serve on four committees and was one of 19 legislators named a "Legislator of Distinction" by the League of Minnesota Cities in 2014. My husband and I are long-time residents of Circle Pines, and our daughter is a proud graduate of Centennial schools. Prior to serving in the legislature, I was elected to the Circle Pines city council and was a 17-year executive for two corporations, Super Valu (County Seat division) and Dahlberg, Inc. My family also owns a small family business in Braham, MN called Braham Monument.
The 2016 election matters to all who care about the future of our state and policies affecting education, transportation and jobs. I hope to continue to serve the residents of 38A and sincerely ask for your vote!
Linda Runbeck - State Representative, Dist. 38A
