To the editor,
In today’s partisan climate it is not common to see politicians working across the aisle to improve policy for all Minnesotans. Second time endorsed DFL candidate Colin Lee, of Lakeville, running for State Representative in 58A, has already proven he would do just that.
In 2011 Colin, as a concerned citizen, reached out to Republican Representatives Jim Abeler and Pat Garofalo to bring attention to an issue regarding HMO’s over-billing the state on Medicaid invoices. Colin’s initiative led to the Health and Human Services Committee holding a hearing and ultimately led to our state’s HMO Medicaid program being audited.
If Colin Lee was willing to work with Republican legislators to improve the condition of our state as a concerned citizen, imagine what he would do as a State Representative.
To me it proves that Colin believes we as Minnesotans are all in this together. If elected to the state house I believe Colin will continue to work with anyone and everyone, no matter their political affiliation, to ensure he produces legislation that is best for all Minnesotans.
