Echo Press Endorsement

"We believe DFLer Gail Kulp of Alexandria would be a strong catalyst for change in House District 8B. Although she'd be a newcomer to an elected office, she has a solid background in health care and working with families of children who have disabilities...Kulp would bring a calm, reasoned and respectful tone to the Legislature...Kulp deserves the opportunity to bring new solutions to the Legislature as District 8B representative."

I am humbled and grateful to be endorsed by the Echo Press of Alexandria, my hometown.  It is hard to describe my deep feelings for the area that encompasses District 8B, but I feel it as I drive from place to place and as I knock on doors to introduce myself. My promise to be the voice for ALL the people of District 8B has been reinforced by the Echo’s support.

Citizen legislators, not career politicians

Kulp believes people are best served by a citizen legislator—a person who desires to serve the people she represents—rather than someone who wants a career in politics with special privileges.

A citizen legislator works effectively with others by being respectful, honest, practical, fair and diligent.

Kulp is:

  • Willing to listen to your concerns with genuine interest and respect.
  • Confident in the basic good character of Minnesota citizens.
  • Certain Minnesota citizens make sound decisions when they have complete and accurate information.
  • Dedicated to making decisions based on facts.
  • Serious about using tax dollars wisely–knowing they are investments in our future.
  • Committed to getting the work of the Legislature done on time.
  • Passionate about protecting and improving the quality of life in rural Minnesota.

Think your vote doesn’t matter?

The 2012 election for House District 8B was so close it went to a recount. Only 12 votes decided the winner!
