I am proud to support Brion Curran for the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 36B, which includes the communities of Birchwood Village, Gem Lake, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake and portions of White Bear Township. Brion is a good listener, leads with compassion and has vital experience working in law enforcement and disability services. She has deep roots in our community, and has been working hard to talk with voters over the past several months. Brion is the best candidate in the race, and deserves our support. Brion has a deep understanding of some of the most pressing issues facing our community and state, including public safety. As a reserve sergeant and former Sheriff's deputy in Chisago County, she understands what officers need to keep everyone safe.
Brion will act as a bridge between our public safety institutions and the community, and will advocate for increased mental health support for first responders. She will also support programs and policies that have been shown to prevent crime, such as early childhood education, home-visiting programs, community mentoring and after-school programs, and school-based behavioral intervention programs.
Brion has worked for almost two decades in disability support services and understands that we must do more to support community members with disabilities. She knows that direct support professionals must be better compensated for the necessary work that they do and will advocate for solutions to this and related issues from day one as our state representative.
Brion has deep roots in our community. She was raised in a nearby suburb, is a lifelong member of American Legion Post 168 and has served as a reserve sergeant in the White Bear Lake Police Department and as a 911 dispatcher.
Brion Curran’s background and experiences have provided her with the knowledge and skills that will make her a great state representative for our community. I hope you’ll join me in voting for Brion this fall!

Minnesota State Representative
Legislator supports hopeful successor
(Published in White Bear Press & Vadnais Heights Press on October 5th, 2022)
To my friends and neighbors across White Bear Lake and Birchwood Village, thank you so much for your support over the years. Due to redistricting, I won’t be able to represent you in the Legislature in the future. But, you have a great candidate — Brion Curran — who will be a fierce ally for funding and strengthening the mental health and disability support services systems.
I heartily endorse Brion Curran for the Minnesota House of Representatives in the newly drawn District 36B, which includes our neighbors in Birchwood Village, Gem Lake, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake and portions of White Bear Township. Her experience working in disability support services for over 20 years, understanding of our public safety system and support for investments in the state’s mental health system will be invaluable on day one in the Legislature.
If elected, I look forward to working with Brion on all of these issues that matter so much to our community. As the chair of the Behavioral Health committee for the last two years, I know how important it is to have level-headed conversations and debate that will benefit Minnesotans. Brion embodies the best of bipartisan policy-making. She knows that there is more that unites us than divides us.
Brion has worked for decades in disability support services and she knows that right now, Minnesota is not preserving the human dignity of our neighbors with disabilities. We share the belief that we need to increase the reimbursement rate for disability support services to make these jobs more attractive and ensure better outcomes for residents. I am also excited about Brion’s passion to fund mental health care for all Minnesotans. Incidents of depression and anxiety have skyrocketed in recent years, and we need to support a comprehensive system that can help us all be healthier. I hope to hit the ground running in January with Brion.
Brion Curran’s personality and expertise will benefit the Legislature and the entire state. She will be a fantastic representative of our community. Please join me in supporting Brion Curran for state Representative for 36B on Nov. 8!
