Lori Swanson Gets Results That Touch Lives.
Lori Swanson is the only state official in the country who kicked collection
agencies out of hospital emergency rooms. She is the only state official in the
country to stop a rigged arbitration system that was stacking the deck against
people in favor of credit card companies. She was one of the first public
officials in the country to crack down on fraud in the alternative energy
sector. She repeatedly went to bat to protect the financial security of senior
citizens. She stood up for rural critical access hospitals to help keep them
open. And she shined a spotlight on the potential takeover and transfer of
assets of Fairview Health Services to South Dakota-helping to ensure that the
University of Minnesota Medical Center, and the related 40,000 private sector
technology jobs, continue to incubate jobs in Minnesota.
Lori was named one of the "Top Ten Lawyers in America" by the national
publication Lawyers USA. The national publication HealthLeaders named Lori as
one of the top 20 Americans making a difference in health care. Lori received
the Robert Drinan "Champion of Justice" award for her work to reform the credit
arbitration industry. She received the Pro Patria award for her work on behalf
of military personnel. And the Drum Major Institute of New York, an organization
inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., designated Lori's predatory mortgage
lending legislation as one of the top ten policies in America.
Lori Swanson is proof that it matters who holds public office...now, more than
Lori Swanson. Results. That Touch Lives.
