I am in the early stages of door knocking and one thing is already perfectly clear, voters are sick and tired of partisan fighting at the expense of good governance. I share their disgust and pledge to do something about it. It seems as though politicians are locked in battles with a focus of winning at all costs. This is one of the least effective ways to govern. We need to find a way to work together as Minnesotans, in the tradition of past Minnesotans of all parties. While smart people will disagree, we need to tone down the rhetoric and work together to get things done.
