Letter about response to Pieper letter to the editor...


Mon, Jun 8th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

For someone who wants to be a lawmaker, it’s pretty clear that Jon Pieper needs to figure out how the legislative process works.

State Representative Greg Davids IS for clean water solutions, and always has been. He just voted to approve a bipartisan, bicameral proposal that improves water quality across this state. The plan is even supported by farm groups and Governor Dayton.

What Rep. Davids did not support was the illegal taking of a farmer’s property in hopes that doing so would create cleaner water.

Why is this so tough for people to understand? Davids opposed the Governor’s original buffer proposal because it amounted to an unconstitutional land grab. Then he helped craft a clean water buffer plan that even Dayton now wants signed into law.

Pieper knows that Rep. Davids voted in favor of a bipartisan clean water solution and is still trying to push off his rhetoric in hopes of buying future votes – a move that, unlike southeastern Minn. waters, is just plain dirty.

Sincerely,

Doug Baker

Lanesboro, MN

Posted in Wykoff Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, I agree with Yvonne Nyenhuis in her column on domestic tranqility and guns. The cost to taxpayers from gun violence of $229 billion is an ironic twist to those folks who hate paying taxes but love guns. As Yvonne Nyenhuis does, I a .....

Letter about Greg Davids for and against land buffers..

Mon, Jun 1st, 2015
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

. To the Editor, It is very confusing to a reader when Greg Davids states he is both AGAINST and FOR land buffers. Land buffers and clean water go hand in hand as buffers help protect our water sources. Therefore, any vote FOR or AGAINST land bu .....
