Candidate Bio: Jim Haugen

Raised in a small town, Princeton, Minnesota, that nurtured values of self-reliance and community service.

My 30-year consulting career started with small businesses in small towns across the U.S. Then with global companies, I led large complex teams get major projects done, making positive changes.

There have been big changes over the last few decades. Many of us are doing fine, but too many have been left behind. Ordinary people by themselves cannot overcome losing a good-paying job, low pay, the high cost of healthcare or education. I still believe that government should do for people only what they cannot do better themselves.

But government is dysfunctional, and that only gets fixed one congressman at a time, stopping bad behavior. I want to use my skills of getting hard things done, working with all sides, so ordinary people have their fair share in today’s prosperity.

Candidate Bio: Dean Phillips

Dean Phillips’s life did not begin as many expect. His birth father, Artie Pfefer, was killed in Vietnam when Dean was just six months old. Two years later, his mother DeeDee married Eddie Phillips, who adopted Dean and both nurtured and mentored him until his

​untimely ​passing in 2011. Dean attended elementary school in Edina and grew up playing hockey and wading in Nine Mile Creek. After graduating college, Dean worked his way up at the family business, eventually becoming CEO of Phillips Distilling Company. He later left to help turn Talenti Gelato into the best-selling gelato brand, and now co-owns and operates Penny’s Coffee, a small business where they voluntarily pay their employees a livable wage. Dean has two daughters, Daniela (19) and Pia (17) and a new dog named Henry. He is running for Congress to bring inclusive, responsible and independent-minded leadership back to Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District.

Candidate Bio: Adam Jennings

Adam Jennings lives in Tonka Bay with his wife Dr. Megan Jennings, a pediatrician, and their two children. Adam worked his way through college at the U of M working at the Ford Twin Cities Assembly Plant as a UAW member, and in administration at the U of M as a member of AFSCME. After 9/11, Adam joined the Minnesota Army National Guard, where he served eight years – including being deployed to Kosovo. Adam got his MBA in finance at the Carlson School.  He has worked professionally at Allianz and Mortenson Construction, and owns a small business that provides housing for military veterans.
