Letter about response to Haugerud letter...

Letter about response to Haugerud letter...

To the Editor,

Erika Haugerud is entitled to her opinions, but she can’t make up her own facts. Her recent letter tried to suggest State Representative Greg Davids doesn’t work with members of both parties. This is untrue.

Davids put together a tax relief bill this session that was supported by 89% of Republicans and Democrats in the Legislature - including every DFL senator. That’s the definition of being bipartisan. If not for a governor who puts politics over people and vetoed a tax bill over light rail, we’d all be seeing the results of Davids’ hard work.

Haugerud also appears to be a big light rail supporter, and actually makes the claim that rural Minnesota wouldn’t have to pay for the Southwest Light Rail line that derailed a special session for tax relief, bonding, and road and bridge funding. Erika, do you know where the money comes from to construct, maintain, and repair light rail lines from here til eternity? Minnesota’s taxpayers. All of them, not just Metro.

It cannot be denied that Governor Dayton killed your tax relief for farmers, small business owners, college graduates and working families over light rail. It cannot be denied that rural tax dollars will be used to fund Minneapolis light rail. And it cannot be denied that State Representative Greg Davids continues to fight for the needs of Fillmore and Houston counties, and has done so by working with members of both parties. Facts are facts, and Erika Haugerud’s letter was not only misleading but simply untrue.

Sincerely,

Doug Baker

Lanesboro, MN
