Letter about Jeremy Miller...


Mon, Jun 6th, 2016
Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

The Minnesota Legislative session is over and no one is happier than Senator Jeremy Miller. It’s no longer where Senator Miller wants to be, at least based on his attendance record over the last two sessions, that’s what you’ve got to think. And who can blame him. He’s got a young family that needs him home in the evenings to tell them stories and read books to them. That’s not something you get to push the button on the remote to record and play back later when you have the time. There are no summer reruns.

Senator Miller cast some really unfortunate votes in this last session. For one, he voted against helping college students with their student debt and for another, he voted against family leave. Why? These are things that would have been a big help to the college students and struggling young families in his district. Why? Perhaps it’s because he is privileged. He probably has no college debt. All he needed to get a good paying job in the family business was to take a few business courses at the local community college. A job that pays well enough that his wife can afford to stay home and take care of the kids. No need here for debt relief or family leave.

It’s time to let Senator Miller spend more time at home with the family. Thank him for serving, but let him move on.
