My name is Pat Driscoll and I’m the DFL endorsed candidate for the new district 41A. I have lived in Minnesota all my life. I grew up in St. Paul the fourth in a family of five girls. I earned my BS degree at UW-River Falls, and my MA and Ed.S. degrees from the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul. I taught students with learning disabilities for many years and was an elementary principal for 18 years. I’m running because I want to improve people’s lives. I’ll fight to fully fund public education, provide affordable healthcare for all people, and stop global warming. My team of experienced, knowledgeable, and caring community members will work hard to win this seat and keep 41 A Blue.
