DFL Legislators Line Up Behind Jon Applebaum for State Representative in HD44B




Today, Jon Applebaum proudly announces the endorsements of Senator Ron Latz (DFL-St. Louis Park), Representative Ryan Winkler (DFL-Golden Valley), and Representative John Lesch (DFL-St. Paul).  These three well-known legislators are respected in the community and have a combined 32 years of legislative experience between them.


Senator Ron Latz announced, “Jon Applebaum knows that small businesses are the engines that drive our economy.  He understands that we must encourage economic prosperity in our state by supporting our local businesses, entrepreneurs, and by ensuring workers earn a fair and livable wage, so that Minnesota continues to be an economic leader.  Jon Applebaum will be a most valuable addition to the legislature.  I am excited to support him.”


In announcing his endorsement, Representative Winkler stated, “Jon Applebaum is a strong advocate for working families and is committed to ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity for success through education.  He knows the importance of investing in early childhood education so all Minnesota kids have a strong foundation from which to grow.  I know the hard work and dedication Jon will bring to this issue at the Capitol and I look forward to working with him.”


Along with Sen. Latz and Rep. Winkler, Representative Lesch voiced his support for Jon Applebaum, declaring, “I am endorsing Jon Applebaum because of the dedicated passion he exudes for public service, his small business background, and his admirable commitment to doing whatever it takes for a Democrat to keep this seat.  Jon Applebaum will bring fresh ideas and new leadership for his hometown district – and will be a breath of fresh air at the Capitol!  He will be an asset to his community and all Minnesotans at the legislature, and I look forward to serving alongside him.”


In response to these endorsements, Applebaum said, “I am very honored to receive endorsements from such great legislators.  During their time at the Capitol they have done so much to move Minnesota forward and made significant contributions to provide for and maintain our high quality of life.  I cannot wait to join them in the legislature so we can continue that great work.”
