A MESSAGE FROM BEN

Thank you for visiting!

  • I do not take the responsibility lightly to serve the people of Prior Lake, Jordan, Jackson Township, Louisville Township, Sand Creek Township, Spring Lake Township and a portion of Shakopee at the capitol in St. Paul. I believe that my experience and background have uniquely prepared me for this service at this time.
