Thanks to the thousands of people that voted for me in the hope that we could back our police and first responders, improve our schools and fight inflation together. We must accept the results of this election, and take time to plan for the challenges ahead.

Congratulations to Kristin Bahner for State Representative on your re-election.

Thank you to everyone that shared your time, your treasure and your prayers in the hope that we would prevail. I’ll never forget the amazing support I received in this effort from so many of you.

With thanks,

News Update.... Maple Grove Mayor Mark Steffenson Endorses John Bristol

News Update.... Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association Endorses John Bristol



John firmly supports our law enforcement officers and first responders. John believes we need to give law enforcement the tools and support they need to get convictions and tougher sentences for violent and repeat criminals. According to the Minnesota Constitution, government is instituted for the security, benefit and protection of the people. Not only are we looking to keep Maple Grove safe, but we all want to be able to go downtown to enjoy all it has to offer and feel safe there as well. Our current Administration’s policies on crime have led to unprecedented violence and lawlessness that must be stopped.

Improving Educational Outcomes:

John will work to make sure that parents can make the choice as to where and how their children are educated, and that funding follows their child. Parents must also be recognized as having a say in what is in the curriculum and that the curriculum and materials used in the classroom are available to parents at any time. John will work hard to be sure that politics are removed from the classroom.

Economic issues:

Every Maple Grove family is feeling the pinch from inflation and the rising cost of gas and energy.  John  will work to implement permanent structured tax relief for Minnesotans including the elimination of all State taxes on Social Security benefits for our seniors. John will work to eliminate fraud, waste and abuse in Government, and make sure we’re being respectful and efficient with your tax dollars. Minnesota needs to do more to make our business climate more competitive so we can attract and keep workers and businesses. 

Want to be part of our team? We need you!
