Why I’m running to be your new state representative

“I believe in calling balls and strikes, it doesn’t matter to me if the pitcher of a good idea is wearing a red jersey or a blue one, Republican or Democrat.  If it is good for Elk River, Big Lake, and Otsego, I’m going to take a swing at it.  Common sense and working together seems to be absent from much of our politics these days.  I’m not interested in partisan fights, but instead building relationships and partnerships in our community and St. Paul to get things done.  I believe in a government that works for everyone, I believe God does too, and I pledge to work tirelessly for the voters of Elk River, Big Lake and Otsego.”

2020 Legislative priorities

  • Work for equal access to resources in K-12 funding for Elk River, Big Lake, and Otsego Public Schools.
  • Target Sherburne and Wright County for State Economic Development Incentives.
  • For the $1.3 billion budget surplus: “Jesse” style tax rebates and investments in roads.
  • Provide access to faith-based recovery programs. 
  • Improve health care for our families. 
Chad Hobot regularly attends and volunteers at Free Grace United Church, Elk River.

Access to Faith Based Recovery

Every week someone in our community is required by the state or county to participate in a recovery program for a variety of reasons.  Seven years ago I quit drinking alcohol.  A state program didn’t help, and counseling didn’t work.  A faith-based program did.  I’ll work to ensure faith-based programs can be an alternative option and available for those who want it.  Too many people are getting left behind, all options that work should be considered.
