Thank you for believing in the power of our movement. It is truly a grassroots campaign that has inspired us two years ago and continues to sustain us to this evening’s victory. Once more, you have voted to send me to another term in the Minnesota House, and I will work even harder to not disappoint you.
As a new year rounds the corner and a new legislative session is on the horizon, we have much more left to do: such as completing the unfinished business from the regular session — including the need to continue responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and safeguarding the health and well-being of all Minnesotans.
Two years ago, you sent me to the House, the people’s house, where we negotiate and hammer out the best laws which can govern our state and serve our communities. It has been and continues to be my great life’s honor to represent you in the Minnesota legislature.
Today is a most momentous day in our nation’s history.
Electoral projections have us breaking a 100-year voter turnout record, and it is no hyperbole that this is the most important election of our lifetimes, both as individual Americans and for the fate of this nation.
As we relish in the small victories throughout our state, I stand with you in solidarity and hope that tonight we will also drive out the forces of darkness and hate at the federal levels of governance.
In a year capped off by the worse pandemic of modern times and four years of the worse presidency ever, let’s look forward to rebuilding this country back better when a new day dawns tomorrow.
I want to give my personal thanks to my campaign team and everyone who has helped us along the way since I declared my candidacy two years ago. The road has not been easy, and we had to fight through a pandemic. Thanks to my campaign staff and advisors who have stuck with me 100% of the way through. Your hard work cannot be repaid for how you believed in me more than I could believe in myself. I cannot thank you enough for leading the charge to get us to this moment. And I cannot tell you how grateful I am to be on your side and the honor I have in knowing the finest organizers in Minnesota. Thank you for inspiring me.
I want to thank last but definitely not least, my family, on whose immigrant shoulders I stand. My family has given me always, their unwavering support. Whether it was cooking meals and providing snacks for volunteers or twisting relatives arms to vote and give money, they are my first campaign team at home and in my life. My parents came to this country as refugees and worked hard all their lives to provide for us, while speaking very limited English. It will be my life's greatest honor to continue fighting for them and others like them, at the Minnesota House. Thank you to my family.
Thank you again for the honor of sending me back to be your voice for the east side in the People’s House.
Have a great evening and be safe!
