Closing thoughts from Marla, on election eve

There have been times in these 8 months where I have felt exhausted. But there has never been a time where I wanted to turn back. I am fighting for this seat so I can help people. I know that’s cliché, but it’s very much true.

That’s why I’m running. The middle class is getting squeezed from every direction and we’ve had it. We don’t want to live on the edge of barely making it anymore. I want to make it better for all of us. It’s about time the middle class gets a break! Work together, find a solution together, make it happen, it helps people.

If that’s important to you, vote for someone who believes it. Is someone fighting for you up at the capital? If not, vote for one who will. Vote for me, Marla Vagts, District 58B. A new kind of representation.

Marla Vagts meets with Sen. Al Franken

Minnesota House 58B candidate Marla Vagts recently met Sen. Al Franken on the campaign trail.

In his first six years as a U.S. Senator, Minnesota’s Al Franken has gained a reputation among his peers as an open, hard-working representative of the people who regularly crosses party lines to solve problems. He squeaked into the Senate by 312 votes but bested the combined total of all his GOP challengers by more than 2,000 in the recent primary.

Marla Vagts will bring that same independent spirit to her work as 58B’s state representative, listening more than she talks and seeking compromise to move forward.

Marla Vagts ready to listen at the Dakota County Fair

If you strolled through the exhibits at the Dakota County Fair in Farmington recently, there’s a good chance you stumbled upon Marla Vagts, Minnesota House candidate for 58B. Vagts spent several days at the fair meeting with Dakota Country residents about the change in tone and substance they’d like to see in the Minnesota Legislature.  She believes that in order to represent people, first you need to make yourself available and seek out their opinions. Here, Marla is pictured at the Dakota County DFL booth.
