Diane and Larry Norland, North Mankato
— We have known Clark Johnson for 20 years. He has worked in education for many years. As teachers in years past, we share a common interest with Clark Johnson in excellent education for our children and grandchildren.
He will work to ensure appropriate funding for all our schools, including elementary, secondary and post secondary schools. He is skilled at problem solving and collaboration with the ultimate goal of making education more effective and productive for students.
We need a stable budget. No more borrowing from schools or raising local property taxes because the legislature refuses to balance the budget on its own.
Clark Johnson will be a steady, strong voice for a rational, measured, sound, forward-thinking solution to the budget instability that we have experienced for far too long.
We have many assets in Clark Johnson’s legislative district, District 19A, such as productive farmland, institutions of higher learning, energetic entrepreneurs and good public schools, to name a few. Best of all, we have people who care to create communities that are desirable to live in.
Clark Johnson will work hard to maintain what we have and support continued improvement.
