Letter about Linder quote...


Mon, Jun 15th, 2015
Posted in Peterson Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Mr. Linder likes to cherry-pick his facts as he fails to mention his recorded quote that “the school didn’t flood but the community did.” The fact is the R-P school is using a disaster from over seven years ago, that caused them minimal damage, to feather their own nest (or in this case build a whole new one). This fact should be reprehensible to those who did and will suffer from natural disasters.

He also fails to mention where the R-P school got $650,000 to put in a designated “new school fund” and grow its fund balance while supposedly recovering from this devastating damage. (Source: Clifton Larson Allen audits 2012-13, 2013-14)

Those questioning the bond did not pull these issues out of thin air, we have a stack of documents that were requested from the school that caused red flags to go up. If Mr. Linder has proper documentation why was it not given to us?

The validity of an election that mortgaged everyone in the districts home, farm and business and will cost state taxpayers over $30 million, must be challenged especially when that election was based on the extortion of local taxpayers with ill-gotten state money, bullying, coercion, half-truths, and outright lies all orchestrated by the collusion between Greg Davids, R-P superintendent, Minn. Dept. of Ed and Twin Cities consulting firms.

P.S. I would like to invite the editor of this paper and a reporter to look at the evidence we have.
