My name is Pat Driscoll and I’m the DFL endorsed candidate for the new district 41A.  I"ve 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'm running because I want to improve people's lives and protect the environment.  


  • I'll support laws and legislation that provide affordable healthcare  and prescriptions for all Minnesotans.

  • I support reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, and legislation that invests in alternative energy and products that reduce the use of energy.




I taught students with learning disabilities to read for many years and was a principal for 18 years on the North Shore in Minnesota.

I support investing in education by fully funding our public schools so that teachers have the training and resources they need to provide an excellent education for every child.
