I’m excited and grateful to have the endorsement of Jim Ramstad. Maybe more than any other member of Congress in the last 30 years, Rep. Ramstad championed mental health and chemical addiction awareness, and worked to reduce the stigma that millions of Americans struggling with those diseases have faced. Mental health awareness, and advocating for more and better treatment options, has been a focus of my own civic involvement over the last 20+ years and it will be during my time on the Hennepin County board.
