I whole-heartedly support Sen. David Hann for re-election to the Minnesota State Senate.
As someone who works in senior care day in and day out, I have seen Sen. Hann’s commitment to seniors.
As chair of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, Sen. Hann faced the enormous challenge of balancing the Minnesota Health and Human Services budget. While cuts to this budget were needed due to large state budget deficits, Sen Hann worked to protect senior and caregivers.
Under his leadership, nursing homes were protected from cuts. Sen. Hann has also been a leader in looking for ways to encourage individuals to plan for and pay for their own long-term care needs so that we can maintain a strong safety net for those seniors who will need assistance as they grown older.
Please thank Sen. David Hann by returning him to St. Paul as Minnesota State Senator.
