LETTER: Jessup: ‘An independent, thoughtful and collaborative leader’

To the Editor:

District 42A is lucky to have a legislator representing us at the Capitol that works hard to build consensus with members of both sides of the aisle. During his time representing his constituents, Rep. Randy Jessup has built a reputation as a thoughtful and collaborative legislator.

Perhaps no initiative better exemplifies this than his work on sexual exploitation prevention instruction legislation this session. Rep. Jessup worked with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, as well as a group of high-schoolers, to craft legislation that would allow school districts to include sexual exploitation prevention instruction in health curriculum.

Rep. Jessup was lauded for his work on this legislation from both Republicans and Democrats and it is demonstrative of the type of work he takes on at the Capitol — things that bring people together and don’t divide us.

That’s why I’m proud to support Rep. Jessup this fall. He’s exactly the type of leader our community needs. An independent, thoughtful and collaborative leader to move Minnesota forward. I strongly encourage you to support him this fall.

Kristie Danielson, Arden Hills
