Alexandria – State Representative Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) has formally announced her intention to run for a third term for the Minnesota House of Representatives to represent House District 08B, encompassing northeastern Douglas County and eastern Otter Tail County
“I plan to run on my conservative record opposing higher taxes on hardworking Minnesota families, fighting the damaging affects of Obamacare in Minnesota, and advocating for the unborn,” said Franson.
Franson, a former childcare provider, has been a leader in the legislature opposing the forced unionization of childcare providers.
“As a former childcare provider, I know firsthand the joys and challenges of caring for young kids during the day,” said Franson. “It’s wrong for vulnerable people like children to be caught up in a political power grab that will only take more money from moms, dads, and childcare providers for the sole purpose of filling union coffers.”
Although a member of the minority party in the legislature, Franson was able to pass two bills. One bill provided an upfront sales tax exemption for capital equipment for businesses. The other bill lifted a regulation on distilleries in Minnesota. Both were signed into law.
Franson currently serves on Health and Human Services Policy Committee, Early Childhood and Youth Development Policy Committee, and Higher Education Finance and Policy Committee.
