I plan to address our issues head-on, while representing the values of our area in the House and ask for your support for the seat of State Representative," said LeBrun in a statement.

LeBrun's campaign priorities include: right to life (from the womb to the elderly); retaining Second Amendment rights (LeBrun is a Permit to Carry holder); retaining First Amendment rights; championing for small government (in favor of local control of taxation and against unfunded mandates); taking care of our seniors (reduction of prescription drug costs, reduction of Minnesota income tax on social security, and would propose a property tax freeze for seniors; opioid epidemic (continue the work started on solutions); and local economic development through small business tax incentives, infrastructure support and expanding broadband.
