Hello Friends, My name is Brad Sanford. I was born and raised in this wonderful state. I am a family man, Business Banker, devoted husband and a man of faith. We all reach points in our life where we must stand up and speak out.  My time has come to stand up and help lead and solve problems this state and country are facing. This was not a decision I came to lightly.  I understand the enormous responsibility and duty that I could be taking on for us.  I asked my family what they thought about their opinionated father taking on the issues of today. They said, "Isn't that what makes this country great Dad?"

 We have several issues that not only affect our immediate future but also our children's future. I want our parents to receive their well earned social security payments, I want our children to receive an excellent education, I want the roads in our communities to be repaired,  but I also want our legislators to be responsible and accountable.  Why  are some regional policy making committees not required to have their budgets approved by our legislature?  No more tax and spend without representation!

If you send me to Saint Paul to handle our State's business, I will work with all my fellow legislators to complete that work. 


For Senate District 37  

Candidate Brad Sanford

 Our Senate District 37 represents neighborhoods in Blaine, Spring Lake Park and Coon Rapids.  I have worked hard to serve the businesses and residents in these communities. 

I currently serve on the Spring Lake Park Fast Pitch Association Board. The Spring Lake Park Softball Association is a non-profit organization established to foster the girl's fastpitch softball program in the area of Independent School District 16, which is within the boundaries of Spring Lake Park High School.  This includes portions or all of the communities of Blaine, Spring Lake Park and Fridley.  The association requires quality coaching and provides an atmosphere for learning softball skills for both coaches and players.  Players learn sportsmanship, teamwork and  the fundamentals of the game.

I also serve on the Midwest Animal Rescue & Services Board. Midwest Animal Rescue & Services is dedicated to awareness and support for homeless dogs and cats in our area. Through rescue, foster care, rehab, adoption and training all roads lead home for these lucky animals!

I served as the Chair for the Twin Cities North Chamber of Commerce's Grow Minnesota program participation. This program promotes a healthy business climate for Minnesota businesses.  It addresses challenges that businesses are currently facing and gives them a voice that is eventually heard by the legislature.  This program works to keep businesses in Minnesota strong and globally competitive.
