A Veto for Education

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON MAY 20, 2018

Thank you Governor Dayton for standing for quality education for our state. A veto makes a powerful statement to our legislature that our children’s education is our top priority for Minnesota.

Being a teacher is a labor of love — working with students from all different backgrounds with diverse home lives and needs. Our educators need our support because it is an investment in Minnesota’s future: our children.

Let’s work together to elect new leaders to the legislature to prevent such future vetoes. Want to help flip our state house? Sign up to volunteer and let’s get this done in 2018 — for our children, and for our future: https://www.bahnerforhouse.com/volunteer/

Avoiding Another Education Funding Emergency

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON MAY 11, 2018

Minnesota currently has a budget surplus — yet we’re facing potential layoffs of hundreds of our beloved teachers if we don’t pass emergency education funding in the next two weeks.

Education should be the #1 priority of those who represent you — it will determine our children’s future and therefore our own. This is not a difficult choice and it is not a partisan issue, yet we are facing a roadblock from our Republican representatives.

It’s important to elect leaders who hold our shared values for education to avoid a crisis in the future. I want to be that leader for you in district 34B, but I can’t do this alone.

We are in this together and I am asking everyone in Maple Grove and Osseo to invest in our shared future by investing in two key areas:

First, your fully refundable contribution of $50: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kristinbahner

Second, a few hours of your time with a volunteer shift to contact other voters. Please sign up today and we’ll invite you to our next event! https://www.bahnerforhouse.com/volunteer/
