Gene Dornink is a lifelong Minnesotan, raised on a dairy farm, small-business owner and lives in the district with his wife, Vicky, and their children.

Gene graduated from Austin Vocational School with a carpentry degree and worked in resident construction. He then worked in the Carpenter’s Union in Rochester for over 22 years. In 2009, he was laid off in the poor economy and started a successful family business, which he continues operating today.

He has lived and worked alongside people in the Unions, medical field, as well as small business owners and teachers. He has not built his understanding of the everyday, hard working Minnesotan from a political bias or intellectual theory, but from first hand experience, personal conversations and laboring side-by-side with the hard working men and women of our district and state.

As our State Senator, Gene will bring his real life work experience to advance and protect policies that care for the real needs of the people of this district, from healthcare for our elderly, to safe and effective learning environments for our children.

I believe that God has given me the ability and passion to fight in the arena of public policy, for the sake of my fellow Minnesotans and in the name of liberty. I do not pretend to be able to single-handedly change the course of our nation. However, I do know that when we, the average American citizens, band together to leverage our resources, talents and voices against the radical agenda being forced down our nation’s throat, we can alter Minnesota’s and America’s future, for the sakes of generations yet to come. So I am asking you to join the battle.

What Gene Will fight for

Protecting and defending all human life, from the unborn to the elderly.

Z

Pro-business, especially the small businesses that are directly impacted in our district.

Promoting more efficient and sensible government spending.

Z

I support term limits. Our current state senator is entering his 15th year.  It’s time for new ideas.

Z

Lower Taxes as well as less government overreach and regulation.

Z

Pro-education, parental choice and local control.  Teachers and local school boards take the brunt of too mch legistlation, like the bullying bill, instead of leaving the local experts to take care of their own issues.  Education decisions should be made locally.

Overhauling the debate that MNSure has become, wasting $275 million of our hard-earned taxpayer dollars.

Pro-Second Amendment and a concealed carry permit holder.

Z

Supporting agriculture and agribusiness; standing up for area farmers who continue to be over-taxed and over-regulated.

Z

1 Bill, 1 vote. Let’s vote each bill up or down so you know how your legislative representatives really stand.

Z

Real healthcare reform. Let’s make Minnesota the nation’s leader with a healthcare program that makes sense for everyone.
