A no-nonsense approach to just deliver for our communities
Grant Hauschild and his wife Grace chose to raise their family in the Northland because they love it here. First and foremost, Grant is a father to Henry and Isla. He decided to run for State Senate because he wants our state to be better off for our kids than it is now.
Grant brings a wide range of experience at the federal, state, and local level. From his time working in rural economic development for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), to his time serving as a labor policy aide to U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, he brings the breadth of policy experience we need to just deliver for our region.
While at the USDA, Grant assisted with administering grants and loans for rural small businesses, energy cooperatives, broadband expansion projects, and rural housing projects. When serving in the U.S. Senate, Grant helped draft U.S. Postal Reform legislation to keep our rural mail service intact and helped deliver special pay raises for hundreds of civilian air force employees.
Now, Grant has the privilege of serving his community as a local city councilor. In his mind, it’s the best job he’s ever had because he gets to work at improving the community around him and learning about the issues that matter most to people. From simple things like road repairs, to more complex challenges like childcare costs and workforce shortages, Grant understands the issues facing our communities because he experiences it himself every day.
In his day job, Grant serves as the Executive Director of a healthcare foundation where he raises money for patients and families who can’t afford the costs associated with their care. It may seem odd, but given the type of work he does, Grant’s goal is to make his job less necessary. No family should have to rely on fundraising or go-fund-me pages to get the care they deserve. That’s why he’s backed by the Minnesota’s Nurses Association (MNA).
Grant believes that around the Northland, people go out of their way to have each other’s back. We extend a helping hand to one another – friends, neighbors, and even complete strangers. But we don’t just do it to make ourselves feel good, we do it because we know that life is that much easier when we have each other’s back. Grant believes our leaders should have our backs too.
