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.

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."
