DFL Endorsed Laurie Warner Seeks House 32B

Laurie Warner, DFL, is seeking election in Minnesota House District 32B, contesting the seat currently held by Rep. Bob Barrett (R-Taylors Falls). Laurie and her husband Mike live in North
Branch, have four kids and six grandkids.

Warner is a dedicated community volunteer, including involvement with the North Branch Beautification Association, Wyoming area Creative Arts Community, North Branch Area Pubic
Schools Facilities Study Group, North Branch ACT on Alzheimer’s, Chisago County Labor Assembly, and the State Apprenticeship Advisory Board.

Warner grew up in a working class family and always believed in fighting for those who are struggling to make ends meet. Having four sisters and a brother taught her the meaning of
compromise, sharing and caring for each other. Laurie’s brother, at the age of 15, was paralyzed in a swimming accident. Suddenly the lives of all in her family were changed. It taught
her th~ importance of working together to help the lives of those less fortunate.

“I will use my life experiences in leading efforts to improve access to affordable health care and affordable housing, to provide quality education including pre-school programs, to support safe
roads and bridges so people can get to work and home again safely, and to bring more good paying jobs into our district,” she says.

Warner understands that Minnesota’s workplaces need to work for families. As the state rapidly approaches a workforce shortage, businesses and workplaces will need to adapt.
Warner supports policies to help employers recruit, attract and retain new and diverse workers to the local and state economy can continue to thrive.

Warner emphasizes, “Providing all students access to great education will ensure our workforce is prepared for better jobs, make our state a place of innovation and build an economy that
increases opportunities for all Minnesotans.

Warner adds, “We have a responsibility to improve incomes for all Minnesotans, not just those at the top, so everyone has opportunities to earn a good living, support their families and retire
