News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

I want to begin by expressing my condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed in the recent attacks in Tel Aviv.

Earlier this week, I returned from my first trip to Israel hosted by the organization Aish HaTorah and a group of Jewish leaders from the Twin Cities. During the trip we visited many amazing sites of religious and political significance, and met with citizens and members of the Israeli government and military. There is only so much you can learn from reading and this trip was a truly hands-on experience I will never forget.

Perhaps the most memorable visit of the trip was visiting Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust memorial. This haunting memorial dedicated to the millions of Jewish people who were systemically murdered symbolizes why the state of Israel is critically important to the Jewish people. It represents everything they have overcome, the dangers they still face today, and why their national security is so crucial. I have always been in support of the state of Israel and this trip reaffirmed that Israel is one of our greatest allies and strongest partner in the region. 

This week’s despicable attacks are an unfortunate reminder of the serious threats that the people of Israel face daily. The United States must stand strong in our support for Israel and work to rid the region of terrorism once and for all. 

Supporting Responsible Energy 

This week, the House considered three bills that would effectively protect our nation’s energy interests without damaging our economy or job growth. I was proud to throw my support behind all three pieces of legislation. Since energy has been a huge topic of discussion this week, and I have received numerous letters from constituents voicing their concerns over rising energy costs, new regulations and energy taxes, I decided to dedicate this week’s Ask Tom to the issue.

One Week From Today…

I will be holding my first town hall of the year! When I took office, my staff and I promised to be transparent, accountable, and most importantly—accessible. I believe that we achieved this as last year we held 14 town halls, one in each county in my district. 

This year will be no different, and once again I promise to hold a town hall in each county. Next week’s town hall will take place in Sherburne County, so make sure to stop by if you are in the area.

When:     Friday June 17th at 8:00AM

Where:   Sherburne County 

               Big Lake Police Station — Community Room

               790 Minnesota Ave E

               Big Lake, MN 55309

Thank you for staying updated on the work I do in Washington D.C. and Minnesota. Until next week…
