ABOUTLearn More About Laurie Pryor, Candidate for Minnesota State Representative 48A
Candidate for State House 48A - Serving Eden Prairie & Minnetonka
I’m Laurie Pryor, and I’m running to represent you and your family at the Minnesota Capitol as your next State Representative.
I love our community. For decades, I’ve proudly contributed to it as a mom and community volunteer. I want to ensure that our community continues to have such a high quality of life.
As your State Representative I will advocate for thriving schools for all, strong economic opportunities for all, a cost-effective health care system, modern infrastructure, and affordable ways to care for family members.
I grew up in Austin, Minnesota. In the first month of college at Carleton, a guy named Jon knocked on my door to collect money for an all dorm party. Jon and I have now been married 36 years.
We moved to Minnetonka in 1989 because we wanted to raise our three children in a strong community. Our children went to Tanglen and Glen Lake Elementary Schools, West Junior High, and Hopkins High School. I volunteered extensively as a coach and booster for their activities such as Odyssey of the Mind, Destination Imagination, and debate team.
Once my children were grown, I became increasingly involved in the political process as a volunteer, supporting candidates I believed in and knocking on thousands of doors to learn my neighbors’ views on the issues impacting our community. Through those countless conversations, I developed my belief that government can be a force for good—and must also be a careful steward of our hard-earned tax dollars.
I’m proud of the big-tent party I’ve helped build in our area and the warm relationships I have with independents, Republicans, and Democrats alike.
Jon & I now have four grandchildren. I am their primary caregiver for much of each day, and in their eyes I see the future of our state. I want them – and everyone in our community – to have the same wonderful quality of life that I’ve had here in Minnetonka.
Especially now that our political climate has become so polarized, I think we need more moms on the case – getting the job done without looking for attention, building consensus not gridlock, solving problems not creating them.
If I can count on your support for my vision, I ask you to volunteer your time, make a contribution to help me get the word out, and then vote for me on November 8, 2016. Will you join me?
