Karla Bigham for State Senate
2) Karla Bigham, Candidate for State Senate District 54
Karla is also a lifelong resident of her district. She served as Washington County Commissioner, a State Representative, and Cottage Grove City Council member. From her announcement:
“The public’s trust in government and specifically in the Minnesota legislature is at an all-time low. Whether it is the stalemate between the Governor and the legislature or the incidents that led to this special election, our government has squandered the public’s trust. I want to work to restore that trust and bring back common sense.”
“Despite having large surpluses, the legislature has decided to pass the buck when it comes to funding our schools and important services like mental health treatment..The legislature is forcing property taxpayers to pay additional costs for schools while it gives tax breaks to people who smoke cigarettes and own multi-million dollar homes. That is not commonsense.”
