This letter appeared in the Eden Prairie News on October 27, 2016.
At a time when politicians seem to promise but not deliver, Minnesota legislator David Hann does deliver and he works tirelessly for his constituents, regardless of party affiliation. I know this as a registered Democrat and someone Sen. Hann rescued.
Sen. Hann came to my family’s aid in 2016 after I was diagnosed with metastatic breast and brain cancer. He assisted with state tax issues, health insurance claims not getting paid, MNsure confusion preventing one of our children from getting health insurance and a Minnesota unemployment small business tax issue.
I have extensive experience working with health insurance companies and governmental agencies and was appalled that the Minnesota agencies controlling the areas listed above seemed completely uninterested in helping a citizen dying of cancer.
After months and months, hundreds of hours on the telephone, I finally contacted every state senator and Congressman for assistance. Sen. Hann was the first legislator to respond (not one democratic legislator responded). His office immediately scheduled a face-to-face meeting. He vowed to investigate and do what he could. Within a week, every issue had been resolved. This is a man that doesn’t just talk, he actually delivers.
I am honored to endorse Sen. Hann as a man of honesty, integrity and incredible intelligence. I am hopeful one day Sen. David Hann will be Gov. David Hann but for now, we need David Hann in the Minnesota Senate representing all citizens, Republican and democrat alike.
