News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

It was a beautiful week to get to work in Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District and that is just what we did! 

This week, I visited Legacy Christian Academy to read to students and visit with staff, spoke at the Broadband Conference on the importance of improving broadband infrastructure in Minnesota, and held an Agriculture listening session to hear from farmers and discuss the Farm Bill. Additionally, I held a town hall in Sartell to hear the questions and concerns of residents of Minnesota’s Sixth District. 

Thanks for Joining Me!

Since I first took office, I have taken great pride in holding town halls throughout Minnesota’s Sixth District. After so many disruptive town halls across the country over the past month, it was refreshing to have held an event that was productive with Minnesotans willing to have a healthy dialogue about the future of this country.

I depend on the feedback from the people of Minnesota to ensure that I am doing this job to the best of my ability. I am thankful that so many people took the time out of their evening to come share their opinions with me. I look forward to building on tonight’s dialogue and collaborating with the residents of Minnesota’s Sixth District in the coming months.

House Mouse and Senate Mouse

On Wednesday, I had an absolute blast reading to the students from Legacy Christian Academy. I had the chance to read a book called ‘House Mouse, Senate Mouse’ to explain Congress and help to teach the kids about how our nation’s laws are made. 

Our children are the future of this nation, and in order to have a successful future, we must ensure that our children have an understanding of our federal government and the importance of civic engagement. After reading the book, I had the chance to speak a little to the kids and answer their questions. Based off their questions and overall interest, I think may have a few future Congressmen and Congresswomen in this crowd!

The Need to Expand Broadband Infrastructure

On Thursday, I had the opportunity to speak at the Broadband Conference to highlight the importance of improving broadband access throughout our state and nation. At the rate technology is improving and advancing, and at the rate in which it is contributing to educational opportunity, our economy, and community success, it is safe to say that broadband has become one of the most important components of our nation’s infrastructure.

That is why I believe that it is important that we modernize our laws so that they can keep up with technology that is constantly advancing as well as properly invest in broadband infrastructure. I was incredibly happy to see the Office of Broadband Development announce that they would provide thirty-four million dollars to over forty-two broadband infrastructure projects throughout our state. These grants are great news, as it will help to give the same educational, health and career opportunities to all Minnesotans – no matter where they live. 

Once again, thanks for staying up to date with the work I am doing in Minnesota’s Sixth District. Until next week…
