The main purpose of this document is to discuss the impact I made upon the St. Cloud community while running for Minnesota Senate as well as to serve as a reflection of what could have been if I won. In addition, I have included what caused me to enter the political realm. It is formatted as a culminating project/portfolio containing both a literature review as well as an appendix made up of surveys pertaining to balancing a budget, law enforcement, and immigration. Fundamental problems that I believe Minnesota residents need to care more about and focus their attention on are blatant signs of Americans living in a police state, improper budgeting by local government agencies, and the importance of accepting, respecting, and welcoming immigrants and refugees.
