“Morris is a fantastic community,” said Taffe. “My husband Dennis and I are proud to have raised our three daughters here and now watch our grandchildren grow up here. Our schools, small businesses, and strong sense of community make this area a truly great place to live.”

Taffe said that making a more business-friendly environment in Minnesota and ensuring that Minnesota continues as a leader in education are two of her top priorities.

“One-party control in Saint Paul has resulted in higher taxes on hardworking families, and new taxes and regulations on farmers, small business owners, and the agriculture industry,” said Taffe. “We need representation that understands the importance of the agriculture industry and small businesses in our part of the state, and will fight for our values, rather than voting for higher taxes and regulations that make our lives more difficult.”

Taffe is a lifelong Minnesota resident who grew up on a farm just south of Chokio. Taffe owns a small business, a salon located in Morris where she has worked for more than 15 years. She serves on the Prairie Community Services Board, and is an active member of Assumption Catholic Church in Morris. 

While the election is a year away, Taffe said she is eager to talk with voters from across the community and looks forward to hearing people’s ideas and concerns.

“I look forward to meeting people from all over the district so we can get to work on building a brighter future for our children, our grandchildren, and all Minnesotans,” she said.
