Letter: Senate Republicans are failing Minnesota

Letter to the Editor graphic
We are part of The Trust Project.

The Minnesota Senate Republicans are showing us once again that they are the party that does not do anything for the people and state of Minnesota. The Republicans have stated that they will not attend a special session to finish their work.

Why haven’t we heard Sen. Dave Senjem demanding that Republicans get back to work? Our state has money to spend to improve public schools, roads, homes, community assets, nursing homes, and child care. It is completely unacceptable for our Republican senators to not do their job that they are being paid to do.

It is time to vote Republicans out of office so that we can continue to improve the state of Minnesota with Democrats in office.

For decades, the Sisters of St. Francis have placed a Gospel Social Justice message on their fence facing 14th Street Northwest. There has NEVER been any vandalism.
The NGF Study stated that if Soldiers Field Golf Course is closed, 15,000 of approximately 30,000 rounds currently played there would be lost. The remaining 15,000 rounds could be played at the other city courses. Data suggests we play May through October with shoulder seasons in April and November. Those few months host all high school events, fundraising tournaments, leagues, league events and championships, as well as open play.
Killing deer in parks … disgusting and contrary to the “expert opinion”, not safe or imperative.
We appreciate the PB's willingness to print letters to editor voicing our personal perspectives. While they allow us to vent, they are very limited and inadequate for facilitating meaningful honest discussion and for discerning truth. Vague and false portrayals of our candidates have been made here and printed by the PB.
