Letter about response to Jon Pieper...


Mon, Jun 22nd, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

It’s clear Jon Pieper has dusted off his DFL campaign playbook. The first entry is “if you keep repeating something often enough – even if it isn’t true – hopefully people will start to believe it.”

This nonsense about State Representative Greg Davids not supporting clean water needs to stop. Jon Pieper is deliberately distorting facts in hopes of making political gains.

Rep. Davids not only supported but voted for bipartisan, bicameral clean water solutions twice over the past month. The votes are not difficult to find.

On May 18, an agriculture and environment bill that included a clean water compromise proposal that had been agreed upon by the House, Senate, and Governor Dayton was approved on the House floor. Davids voted for it.

A new ag/environment bill was negotiated in special session recently, but it included the exact clean water language that was previously passed in May. On June 12, Davids voted for it again, and Governor Dayton has signed it into law.

At what point is Pieper going to stop being the purveyor of misinformation? Davids’ support of clean water isn’t empty rhetoric; he actually has House floor votes to prove his position.

Jon Pieper will stop at nothing in his narcissistic attempt to become a state lawmaker - including his refusal to recognize the truth – and it’s getting embarrassing. As Abraham Lincoln once said, “better to remain silent and to be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

Sincerely,

Doug Baker

Lanesboro, MN
