Community First

This campaign has always been about people, not politics. Right now many people in our community are facing hardships due to the Covid-19 crisis. Because of this, I’m focusing on how I can help our community.  I’m proud to launch our Community First initiative, which will connect people in our area who need help with those who can volunteer, donate, or provide services. I’m so amazed by everyone who is stepping up to help our neighbors during this time of need.  We’re all in this together.
Thank you,


Erin has the passion, energy and experience to work across the aisle for common sense solutions.

Lakeville's next Legislator

About Erin Preese


Erin is a teacher at an elementary school in Lakeville and is proud to send her own children to Lakeville Public Schools. She knows that our excellent public schools draw new families to Lakeville, keep our property values high, help our children succeed, and make Lakeville an outstanding city for families.


Erin believes that all children should have access to high quality public schools and should be able to grow up in a safe and healthy community. Erin understands the concerns that working families deal with on a day to day basis, and these concerns will be at the front of her mind in the legislature.


Erin has served as a leader for the non-partisan gun violence prevention organization, Moms Demand Action, at the local and state level for the past four years. She understands how to build relationships across party lines and how to navigate complicated issues to find common sense solutions.


In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever for Minnesotans to have access to affordable and quality health care. No one should have to forgo care when they need it the most because they can’t afford it. It’s time to make health care and prescription drugs more accessible for all Minnesotans.

For years, the federal and state government have not met their obligation to pay for special education services.  This has forced schools across the state to pull money out of the general budget to fill this funding gap. In Lakeville, this adds up to 12.5 million dollars every school year, which requires the district to cut student services and drives up class sizes.  The funding gap has also meant that the school district has had to ask voters to pass several school levies, which increases the tax burden on homeowners and local businesses. It is time for the state to fully fund public schools.

Between the cost of childcare, medical insurance, and prescription drug prices, I understand the stress that families feel when balancing expenses.  Many parents are struggling to pay off their own student loans, rather than save for their children’s future college expenses.  As a legislator, I will advocate for tax fairness for families, making sure that the state government is using our tax dollars in a fair and responsible manner.
Minnesota has a rich tradition of hunting, and most hunters pride themselves on their ability to safely handle their weapons. As a daughter of a hunter, I respect the right of responsible gun ownership. But as a mother of two young children and as a teacher who has to do active shooter drills with my students, I know that we need sensible laws in order to protect our children. I support background checks, red flag emergency protective orders, and safe storage laws to prevent children from accessing firearms.  These laws are reasonable, have broad bipartisan support, and are proven to save lives.
