Letter about Failure to meet expectations... To the Editor,


Mon, May 16th, 2016
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

Failure to meet expectations. My job performance evaluation of our Senate and House Representative. Southeast Minnesota has given up a lot in the way of budget compromises.

Minnesota Legislature regular session ends May 23. Republicans in the Senate failed to pass a bonding bill by one vote. Our own senator, Jeremy Miller, voted no. This bonding bill included a provision for $3.6 million to fund necessary safety improvements for the Lanesboro Dam. Onaly one republican, Carla Nelson of Rochester, voted yes. She told the Post Bulletin that she voted yes to support her constituents and advocate for area projects the bill would have funded. I think she gets it!

Greg Davids tells voters he can swing a lot of weight in the capitol, but time and time again, he fails to deliver for Southesast Minnesota. Greg Davids has told us we need to re-elect him because he has the power to fund our much needed infrastructure projects. Yet, over and over again we re-elect him and he fails to follow through on his promises. If state Rep. Greg Davids is as powerful as he says he is and as big a fighter as he claims to be, why has the house still failed to produce its own detailed plan? When Republicans vaguely say they only want to spend $600 million, leaving out critical projects, how can Davids assure us that this reduced budget is going to best serve our communities? Our communities have had cuts to local government aid, education, and infrastructure/transportation projects.

Reduced budgets do not reduce needs. With a strong economy in Minnesota and a surplus, it’s time to invest in Minnesota communities. It’s time for Greg Davids to produce on the promises he makes every election cycle. In the words of a friend, “Greg Davids: All hat. No cattle.”

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 .....
