"I’m running for State Senate because as a mom of three, former local public school teacher and dedicated community volunteer, I have a renewed purpose to fight for great public education for every kid in our state, create more economic opportunity, finally expand access to affordable health care and keep our families safe. By working together, I know we can make the Northland an even better place to live and raise a family."
Maggie Nurrenbern is from the Northland, works in the Northland and has always been proud to call the Northland home. As a mom, a teacher, and a union member, Maggie understands that we need legislators who will advocate for our hardworking families.
