Hi, I am State Representative Matt Bliss.
Two years ago, the residents of District 5A placed their trust in me to put their interest’s first ahead partisan gridlock.
We broke through to rally support for local K-12 education funding, construction of a new student center at BSU, jobs for our region, and especially building a new veterans home in Bemidji.
I am proud of what we have accomplished together for our region and the state of Minnesota.
We have lots more to do so let’s continue to work together to put Northern Minnesota first and keep the momentum going.
This is State Representative Matt Bliss.
Two years ago, residents of District 5A placed their trust in me to put their interests first ahead partisan gridlock. We broke through to rally support for local education funding, more jobs for our region, and support for more than 28,000 regional veterans.
Our local schools received nearly 4 million dollars more in state funding this biennium than before, so we are starting to get our fair share along with additional money to help ease our busing shortfall.
Between funding for a new student center at BSU and some much needed regional transportation and infrastructure funding, we are both investing in the next generation AND creating lots of new LOCAL jobs!
I am especially proud that we finally secured state funding to build a veterans home in Bemidji. They have long deserved it!
Let’s continue to put Northern Minnesota first because there is plenty more to do in our region and we are showing that by working together and sticking to our values and principles, LOTS of good things happen!
