Letter: A wise investment in children

I am so happy that last year the Minnesota Legislature and Gov. Dayton voted to invest more money in our children. We have to prepare all our children to compete in the 21st-century economy.

I am so proud of our state representative, Mary Sawatzky, who voted to support our students. Rep. Sawatzky voted to fund all-day, everyday kindergarten for all our students. Minnesota’s economy is growing and our unemployment rate is 4.6 percent compared to the national unemployment rate of 6.7 percent. Our economy is doing better because Minnesota has a long and proud history of investing in education.

Rep. Sawatzky is living up to our proud tradition of making education Minnesota’s top priority. Kids all across the state will begin their education on the right foot because of this wise investment in early education. Thank you, Rep. Mary Sawatzky.
