Whether it be physical or mental health, our family has experienced enough to know that we simply cannot afford not to support candidates who want to build towards a healthcare system which does not exclude anyone based on their income, severity, or that does not offer protections against discrimination or preexisting conditions. Therefore, we plan to vote Andrea Nelsen, MD, to be our state representative for Prior Lake and Jordan, and again for Angie Craig for the 2nd District.
