VOTE ELLIOTT ENGEN FOR DISTRICT 36A ON NOVEMBER 8th
Leadership, transparency, and honesty are three words that normally don’t mix with politicians. Elliott Engen is more than a politician, he is a public servant that will bring honesty, transparency, and leadership to St. Paul on behalf of the Minnesota House District 36A.
Elliot knows that the people of his district are concerned about the direction of Minnesota and their community. Crime is out of control, family budgets are being ravaged by inflation, and schools are just plain bad. But Elliot has the plan to get things back on track, like holding criminals accountable and supporting law enforcement, putting education back into the hands of parents and students, and cutting regulations that stifle economic growth.
Elliot isn’t satisfied to stop there, in St. Paul he will fight to fix the healthcare system so that it provides a safety net without violating free-market principles. He will also work to make sure that small businesses can thrive without the burden of high government regulations.
Elliot Engen has a plan for his district and he will fight starting day one to make sure that his constituents are looked out for and he’ll do it with leadership, transparency, and honesty.
ELLIOTT ENGEN IS FOCUSED ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER TO YOU
ELLIOTT ENGEN ON PUBLIC SAFETY
"Minnesota is facing the largest crime wave in our state's history, yet the DFL continues to play politics with public safety. Engen will stand against radical calls to "Defund Police" by ensuring the men and women of law enforcement have the resources, tools, and training they need to keep our communities safe (https://www.elliottengen.com/issues)."
ELLIOTT ENGEN ON EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION
"With record lows in reading and math proficiency, it is high time we equip our students with the knowledge needed to pursue goals, social interaction required to improve mental health, and the opportunity to learn in the classroom with friends and peers (https://www.elliottengen.com/issues)."
ELLIOTT ENGEN ON ECONOMIC RECOVERY & TACKLING INFLATION
"Our state government must ensure your hard-earned tax dollars are treated with respect and protected from negligence, fraud, or waste from the state government. For too long, the state has been shirking this responsibility.
The state government has a 7.7 billion-dollar budget surplus but continues to demand more from Minnesotans facing record inflation and cost of living increases. While many Minnesotans struggle to pay their bills, the state seems to be turning a blind eye. Our community deserves leadership that demands transparency from our government agencies and trusts Minnesotans to invest in themselves rather than wasteful bureaucracy (https://www.elliottengen.com/issues)."
ELLIOTT ENGEN ON IMPROVING HEALTHCARE
"When Engen's brother was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, he saw first-hand the emotional, physical, and economic toll it can have on a family.
Crafting a system that provides safety nets for those in need while maintaining our free-market structure will help tackle this issue compassionately and responsibly.
Price transparency, increased telehealth access, and promoting a Direct Primary Care model will allow Minnesotans to have more control of their healthcare needs while simultaneously lowering costs (https://www.elliottengen.com/issues)."
ELLIOTT ENGEN ON SMALL BUSINESS GROWTH
"Our district is home to innovative, hard-working businesses that give our community a unique charm and appeal. Our entrepreneurs and business owners deserve a representative in St. Paul who listens, communicates, and acts. Engen will do just that.
Eliminating costly, ineffective, overreaching mandates is a must. Engen will stand by our local businesses in their need to return to operation without constant burden from the state government. Our main-street enterprises have always been there for us, and it is time they are allowed to flourish without the heavy hand of overbearing regulations and record tax increases.
According to Tax Foundation.org, Minnesota ranks 46th out of all 50 states in the Business Tax Climate Index, a measure that determines how a state's tax code allows for simplicity, competition, and effectiveness. Minnesota was once an economic hub for entrepreneurship. It's time we pride ourselves on being so once again.
Engen has made friendships with many of our local small business owners and repeatedly hears that our state hinders profitability and incentivizes operating elsewhere in the nation. He believes now is the time to course-correct and get main street back on track (https://www.elliottengen.com/issues)."
