FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

REPRESENTATIVE JIM NASH TO RUN FOR MINNESOTA HOUSE

March 1 (Waconia) – Representative Jim Nash (R-Waconia) released the following statement. “After encouragement from friends, family, business, and community leaders, I will be seeking reelection to the Minnesota House of Representatives. It has been my honor to represent the hard working people of Carver County in the Minnesota Legislature for the last two years.”

I know that I work for the citizens of my district and will continue to build on relationships with the people of 47A that began in my first term. In 2015, I was able to pass several bills into laws, and I look forward to the 2016 session and beyond being able to continue to advance the interests of our people in St Paul.

In this session, I anticipate supporting initiatives like a historic tax reduction bill, a transportation funding proposal to dedicate $7 billion to statewide road and bridge needs without raising the gas tax and I am hoping we can create some good reforms of the Met Council for hard working Minnesotans.”

Jim Nash recently received the “Political Champion” award from Southwest Transit for championing bus based transit over any discussion of light rail, and was recognized as a “Legislator of Distinction” by the League of Minnesota Cities for helping create local control for cities.

Representative Nash looks forward to meeting with Carver County Residents at Caucuses on March 1, and is excited to meet with Republican delegates at the March 19 GOP County Convention in Mayer.

They reside in Waconia with their six children: James, David, Sarah, Hannah, Matthew, and Emily.
