Risk-taking and courage

As both a medical doctor and pilot, Andrea knows a lot about courage,risk, and being safe. She also knows when it makes sense to be afraid, and when it makes sense take risks. Risk-taking is something we all do, but putting others at greater risks with our own actions or [...]

Legalizing Cannabis

People in the district are asking, so I’ll say it again: I support the legalization of adult-use cannabis in Minnesota. It just makes sense for criminal justice, public health, and the economy. There is little doubt that current marijuana cannabis laws are too often used as an excuse to target [...]

Tiger King = Tiger Queen

Andrea is a medical doctor who loves animals. She also recognizes the importance of nurturing our natural environment and wildlife, for all of Minnesota, as well as in Prior Lake and Jordan. The Minnesota state legislature has a lot of responsibility and oversight for care of  Minnesota's wildlife and environmental [...]

Andrea Nelsen, is a medical doctor educated in epidemiology. With an MD from Cornell and MPH from the University of Minnesota, she has been trained by both Dr Anthony Fauci and Dr. Michael Osterholm. Andrea is exactly the woman we can trust to hold the [...]

Equality and Social Justice

Justice matters. Equality and equity matter. My opponent has done nothing to address social inequality and injustice in our state, and the fact that a summer of riots started because of the killing of a Minnesota citizen shows that Minnesota is not as just or fair to citizens as many [...]

As your state legislator, I will work with other legislators and elected officials of both parties to make sure we improve our local economy and that business owners want to invest in our community to create new jobs and maintain the ones we have. This will be especially important because of the [...]

Health care for seniors

If I am elected, my top priority will be to take on the high cost of health care. These days, health care expense are bankrupting more Minnesotans than ever, and putting needed treatments and medications out of reach. For seniors, the situation is especially bad. Older adults often need help [...]

Albright is NOT right for 55B!

Tony Albright has represented Prior Lake and Jordan in the Minnesota legislature since 2013. Since that time he has indeed performed some good work for individual constituents, but overall he has proven unable to do the right thing for most of us  when it requires voting against the orders he [...]

Help the environment, help ourselves.

Nice weather we’re having! I remember when a snowy day in October was ammunition for those who didn’t believe in “global warming,” the phenomenon we now understand as climate CHANGE. I grew up in small town Minnesota, a place where we cherished our summers at the lake and our cross-country-skiing [...]

Taxes and Representation

One of the first things I will do after being elected is support legislation that will eliminate the developer fee loophole that is keeping our property taxes artificially high here in the Southwest Metro. Currently developers do not have to pay cities fees to cover anticipated street infrastructure upgrades that their new developments necessitate. [...]

Andrea Nelsen can do the work!

I really appreciate that this paper helps inform us about the candidates in our elections. I, like most people, want to be an informed voter. But there was one thing in particular that jumped out at me when reading the recent Q&A articles for Minnesota House District 55B. The question [...]
