Thanks Sean. This article was recently submitted to the Owatonna People’s Press. Check it out.
I am watching the Minnesota Legislative races closely this election season because Minnesota residents need our legislators to look at significant tax cuts when they convene in January.
Minnesota ranks fourth-worst in tax climate in the entire country. We are surpassed only by New York, California and New Jersey, hardly great company to be keeping when it comes to our taxes. According to Americans for Prosperity, our top tax rate is 85 percent higher than the national average. According to TaxFoundation.org, hard-working people in this state must turn over almost 43 cents of every dollar to taxes. That is just too much for the government to take from our pockets when the state was sitting on a $900 million surplus in February 2016. A surplus that size means we are overtaxed.
As a new college graduate just beginning my career, it is disheartening to discover that young people, like myself, cannot keep more of our own money and put it toward paying off student loans and saving to buy our first homes.
It’s time Minnesota overhauls its tax code. We need someone from District 24 who is interested in helping Minnesota workers keep more of their own money, instead of the government taking our money and telling us how they will spend it.
I am supporting John Jasinski for Senate because he will protect my wallet and give me a chance to make my own future. Join me in voting Jasinski on November 8.
Check out John’s final case during the recent Owatonna legislative forum on Monday, October 31.
“A lot of people in both parties are talking fighting for the people, fighting for issues, fighting for the government,” he said. “Well, I think it’s time to quit fighting, and to get along. We need to work together and negotiate solutions for Minnesota …it does go down to core values, and when you vote on Nov. 8, look at your core values, see who you agree with, and vote that way. I ask you to vote for me.”

Thanks Dave and Renee. This article was recently submitted to the Owatonna People’s Press and the Faribault Daily News. Check it out.
It has been a real privilege to work and be involved in John Jasinski’s campaign for state senator these past few months. John has been a good, loyal and kind friend and an excellent help to us as we strived to run a small business in Faribault.
John always had a listening ear and we were always encouraged by his support and his right-sizing government position. He understands how we need to do more with less.
John has not only proven himself as a mayor of Faribault in working hard to not raise taxes but he is also a successful businessman and has a lot of experience working with budgets to keep the company profitable and to keep people employed. John will be able to take these real world experiences and apply it to the Minnesota state budget and find ways to spend OUR money better without cutting essential services.
As the mayor of Faribault we have been fortunate to witness John interact with so many people of very diverse backgrounds and histories within the community of Faribault. Please join us in supporting John Jasinski for Senate in District 24. We truly need his kind of good quality leadership to represent us.
