Statement from Rep. John Persell on Budget Agreement. SAINT PAUL, MN — Tonight, the House, Senate, and Governor reached a bipartisan agreement on state budget targets. Rep. John Persell (DFL – Bemidji) issued the following statement:
“All Minnesotans deserve access to quality education, affordable health care, and reliable internet. I’m glad that the Governor and leaders from the House and Senate have reached an agreement that makes strong investments in education, secures health care for Minnesotans and expands high-speed broadband service. While reaching an agreement requires compromise, this budget is a step in the right direction.”
I hope that 2019 is going well for you. I am writing to you today to tell you about the important issues I have been working on in the legislature. It is truly an honor to represent the people of House District 5A. There is much work to be done for Northern Minnesota and I am focused on getting it done.
I know my voice is stronger with supporters like you. Will you join me by supporting my campaign with a donation of $35, $50 or even $100 today?
You can use the State’s Political Contribution Refund Program to get $50.00 ($100.00 per couple) back. That means every Minnesotan can donate up to $50.00 ($100.00 per couple) to a political party candidate and receive every dime back in the form of a refund from the State. This refund program allows everyone – including those with limited financial resources – to help get their preferred candidates elected to represent them. Check out the back side of this letter for more info.
