Linda Larson has been an advocate for rural Minnesota her whole life. Growing up on a family farm near Ruthton in southwestern Minnesota, Larson’s connection to the land runs deep. She now serves as Dakota County President for the Farmers Union. “People who are actively farming don’t have the time to go to the State Capitol or Washington DC or to advocate for the policy that supports them.” Larson does, and she advocates for issues like rural broadband, tax policy, food supply, and yes, climate resiliency.
