LETTER: Barr will fight for our community

To the Editor:


As a recent college graduate and young professional, I am voting for Regina Barr because she is focused on prioritizing the needs of our community without raising taxes.

Regina Barr was able to secure a $5 million increase in funding for road and bridge projects in Dakota County, as well as funding to improve Broderick Boulevard and Argenta Trail — she did this without raising the gas tax.

Regina Barr voted for nation-leading reforms in health care that lowered rates for those on the individual market by 20 percent — she did this without raising the provider tax or the sick tax.

Regina Barr was able to fully fund our schools and to provide additional funding for school safety grants — she did this without raising the income tax.

Even after these major accomplishments, Regina Barr was still able to secure the largest tax cut for Minnesotans in 20 years. The tax cut included relief for college graduates like me getting established, seniors on social security and property tax relief for local businesses.

Regina Barr is fighting for our community and will deliver on our priorities — without raising taxes. Please join me in voting for Regina Barr on Nov. 6.
