Let’s get off the sidelines, 34A

For the last eight years, State House District 34A has been represented by Republican Rep. Paul Kohls.  Since Republicans went into the minority in the State House in 2007, Kohls has precisely zero significant legislative accomplishments. 

Kohls chose to grind the partisan ax and engage in pointless antics designed to position himself for his short-lived campaign for governor.  The problem with such an approach, though, is that it is oblivious to the real problems faced by families in the district.  Did Kohls do anything to get roads built?  Did Kohls do anything to improve our schools?  Did Kohls do anything to ensure that the most vulnerable in our society were protected?  Sadly, the answer to all of these questions is “no”.

As you know, Kohls is retiring from the House, and District 34A is an open seat.  There is a very real choice to make in this election.  The Republican nominee, Ernie Leidiger, holds positions that are even more out of the mainstream than Kohls.  The Democratic nominee, Leanne Pouliot Kunze, is a moderate, solutions-focused candidate who is in tune with this district because she has been here her whole life and is an integral part of the community.

With the problems this state faces, we can’t afford to have representation in St. Paul that is too busy playing partisan games to address the issues that are on the table.  It’s time for District 34A to have a chance to influence the direction of the state.  It’s time for representation that won’t be standing on the sidelines.  It’s time for representation that will work hard to solve problems.  That’s Leanne Pouliot Kunze — please vote for her on November 2.
