Dear Friends & Neighbors:
Thank you for taking the time to visit this website to learn more about our campaign to remain your state senator from Senate District 14 here in central Minnesota. This district includes the cities of St. Augusta, St. Cloud, and Waite Park as well as Haven and Minden Townships. I have considered it an absolute privilege to serve you and our communities the last two years.
“As your senator, I have never taken your support for granted and have offered honest and fair representation after taking the time to hear both sides of each issue.”
Please give me your vote on November 6, 2012 to continue working on your behalf. The information on these pages will help you to get to know Senator John Pederson better. When you look further you will learn that I have strong family ties in our community with experience in local manufacturing, agriculture, and the environment.
I am working hard to help hold government accountable for the way your hard earned dollars are spent. I am asking for improved efficiency with the appropriate services to meet the needs of our residents without asking for more.
As your senator, I am always prepared and informed for the meetings and senate sessions I attend on your behalf. I will continue take that same commitment and work ethic to the State Capital for you. As your Senator I will encourage the legislature to hold spending increases to the current rate of inflation and population growth and live within our means.
Please allow me to continue to represent you in the State Senate. I would be very grateful for your support. Thank you for your consideration. Please call or write anytime. I will always welcome your input and advice.
John C. Pederson
