Kathryn Eckhardt is running for the Minnesota House in district 35B because we need new voices in government who are committed to building strong communities and representing all Minnesotans. Kathryn believes that elected officials should put the needs of the community ahead of personal agendas both because it's the right thing to do, but also because we create better policies when we put our communities first. Our community is built on a shared foundation that values hard work, dedication to family, and giving back. If we build from that shared foundation we can create stronger communities that are prepared to thrive no matter what challenges the future holds. Our district is a special place. We take care of each other here and don’t shy away from hard work and tough jobs. When it comes right down to it, we all care about keeping our communities safe, seeing our families thrive, and desire a fulfilling retirement. Our community deserves a representative committed to putting people first. If elected to be your representative, Kathryn will fight for you and your family and advocate for our entire community in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
