State Representative Diane Anderson, an Eagan resident and business owner, announced today that she has officially filed her candidacy for reelection to the Minnesota House and she will be seeking her second term in office. Anderson is running for House District 51A which includes parts of Burnsville and Eagan. Diane Anderson resides in Eagan with her husband and two children.
Anderson has a BS degree from the University of Minnesota. She feels her experience, as a small business owner, will help her craft legislation to encourage job growth and a strong economy. She will work to assure a well-educated workforce. Anderson said, "I plan to continue to focus on job creation, strong economy, and less government spending." Our biggest accomplishment was to take the $5.1 billion deficit and turn it into a $1.2 billion surplus in just one year. Our reforms and policy of less government spending worked to improve Minnesota's economy.
Diane Anderson has served on the Health and Human Services Finance Committee, Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee, and Judiciary Policy and Finance Committee.
Looking into the future, Anderson said it is important that we pursue additional solutions to:
- Improve the Minnesota business climate;
- Hold the line on taxes and spending;
- Make education funding simpler and fairer, and continue to fund at an appropriate level;
- Bring more accountability to our schools to improve results and give our children more opportunities for their future;
- Bring more accountability to government at all levels to help us get the most out of our tax dollars, keeping Minnesota competitive.
Anderson said, "This district needs a fiscally conservative representative who is committed to helping Minnesotans keep more of their hard earned paychecks. It is important to improve Minnesota's job climate."
