Vision

Committed to Community

Sonja Buckmeier for MN State House – Building a Future We Can All Believe In.

Sonja’s vision for District 30A is one of inclusive prosperity and support. She envisions fully and fairly funded public schools for our children, businesses that prioritize both people and profits, accessible high-quality health insurance and childcare for all Minnesotans, and a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

A Safer, Healthier Minnesota

It’s time to ensure every Minnesotan has access to quality affordable care including mental healthcare, preventative care, vision, dental, equipment, and prescriptions. Everyone deserves to feel safe wherever they go. It’s essential that we support and strengthen public safety. In addition, we need to protect our natural heritage, preserve our clean water resources, and tackle climate change.

Investing In Our Educational System

Our young people are the future, and it’s crucial for our community and state to invest in their success.This spans from early childhood care and learning to post high school college or trade school. Fully funding public schools must also include providing more counselors, nurses, social workers, and psychologists to help students deal with the stresses of our society. We must utilize the best science and ideas to adjust our education system, ensuring it meets the evolving needs of today’s students.

An Economy that Works For Everyone

Every family should have access to affordable child care, and those who provide this vital service deserve fair compensation with a living wage. Supporting working families also means implementing policies such as paid sick and safe time, paid family leave, and child tax credits. Additionally, promoting affordable housing, investing in infrastructure, and developing a well-trained workforce are crucial for attracting and retaining businesses. Advocating for smart tax policies to eliminate wasteful spending and fraud is necessary, as is protecting social security and pension benefits.
