News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

If you observe, I hope your Lenten journey was fruitful and that you had a blessed Easter. I enjoyed spending the day with my family, and being in Minnesota to meet with constituents.  

Thank you to everyone who attended my town hall in Blaine on April 1. There was a great turnout, and a thoughtful discussion on some important issues. I will be holding these events over the next two years. Keep checking back at for one near you.

"We were not sent to Washington to fight for the status quo, but rather to lay a foundation for economic growth, removing the burden on our children and balancing the budget, simplifying the tax code so hardworking taxpayers keep more of what they earn, putting our health and retirement programs on a solid footing and properly funding our military."
