State Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, visited Golden Horizons Assisted Living in Crosslake on Friday, May 3, to hear concerns from citizens.
She spoke to a crowd of around 15 people, from both inside and outside of Golden Horizons, on a wide range of topics, but mainly on health care and long-term care.
“I think the state’s priorities are going in the wrong direction,” Ruud said.
She said she’s working to raise awareness for the need for funding for long-term care, saying it’s been cut to the “bare bones.”
