Details for STANDING UP FOR ALL Why Representative


Why Representative Rob Ecklund for another term?
Rob has been our Representative since 2015. Rob did not waste anytime once elected. He championed
broadband expansion for rural Minnesota. His record with our veterans is impeccable. Rob was the leading
force in fighting chronic wasting disease threatening our white tailed deer population.
This year our world has been turned upside down with the Covid pandemic. Every person in Rob's district is
affected in some way. Job loss, businesses being ordered closed, bridge to Canada closed, Voyageurs National
Park closed, businesses in our community damaged, schools closed. There is more.
Through this time Representative Ecklund has never dodged a call or having to deal with extremely difficult
decisions being made that impact his district in negative ways.
I learned that if I ever had to have a person join me in a fox hole Rob would be the first choice after my brother.
He gave great advice and guidance even though some of the guidance did not make some people happy.
Rob has exhibited great leadership in the worst situation our state has ever faced.
