Do better, become greater

For me, politics is new work, an opportunity to serve and to fix problems. I don’t live for politics, but I do politics to improve lives. Too many of us work hard and yet live in distress, too many of our young people and teachers struggle in schools that need support, too many of our friends and loved ones lack fair access to good healthcare.

Our area has adopted Greater! as its motto. That’s both a description and a goal. My commitment as a legislator will be to make it become ever more true, for us here in St. Cloud, Waite Park, and St. Augusta and for our state.

We can do better.  We will do better, and we will become greater.

Here’s why I’m running.

Meet Aric Putnam

Aric is going to be an incredible Representative for the people of St. Cloud, Waite Park, and St. Augusta. But don’t take our word for it: hear it from your neighbors.


Next Chance to Meet Aric

Public Safety Town Hall

WHEN: Saturday, March 24 at 3:30pm

WHERE: The Array Room at the St. Cloud Library

Join Aric and Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud for a conversation on the state of public safety here in St. Cloud, Waite Park, and St. Augusta: what’s good, what could be better, and what we need from the legislature to help the police officers and fire fighters in our district.  Bring your questions!
