like in 2011 when we were faced with a potential government shutdown, I
don’t believe it’s fair that I should get a paycheck while hardworking
Minnesotans are stuck at home, worried about paying their bills,
watching as House Republicans hold our economy hostage.
each day the government remains shut down, I will be donating my salary
to Second Harvest Heartland -- a great organization that works
throughout Minnesota, providing vital assistance to families who would
otherwise go hungry.
While the government is shut down, I
believe giving my salary to charity is the right thing to do. And I will
continue working as hard as I can to get the government up and running
