Tom's message is clear: the people need a voice

Outside groups like the "Coalition for Minnesota Businesses PAC" and the Republican Party have spent tens of thousands of dollars misleading Itasca and Cass County voters about Tom Anzelc's record. You've probably received dozens of nasty mail pieces and stilted phone calls from people who clearly don't live here and often can't even pronounce their own candidate's name.

Tom has a message that's clear. He's going to fight to restore the homestead property tax credit, something his opponent voted to end. He's going to restore funding to the schools and create a stable, sustainable, fiscally responsible way to fund schools from here on out. He'll spend his time talking about jobs and schools, not divisive social issues.

Tom's opponent has been telling people that she's concerned about big Twin Cities corporations if we make them pay their fair share of taxes. Even though property taxes, tuition and fees have gone up on people who actually live in District 5B, she's worried about a handful of people who live in expensive suburbs, who already have representation in the legislature and the ability to hire countless lobbyists.

Tom Anzelc will do the job that needs to be done: represent the people of northern Minnesota.

Tom will debate his opponent on the KAXE Morning Show in Grand Rapids Thursday, Oct. 25, at 8:15 a.m. You can listen online at or on 91.7 FM.

Tom will continue to share his plans to pay back our public schools, restore the homestead property tax credit and stand up for the people and communities of northern Minnesota.

Students in Grand Rapids show Rep. Tom Anzelc the technology they use to learn in the classroom. Anzelc is endorsed by public school teachers because they know he has stood up for kids and teachers in St. Paul.
