Letter about support for Jon Pieper...


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

In the last years, my home valuation has gone down, but my property taxes to the city and county have gone up. Why? Because Local Government Aid (LGA) to cities was taken away by Republicans. This program used income taxes from all Minnesotans and distributed it to cities based on population. This was fairer, especially to those of us who live or have a business in small towns, and don’t have much industry to support town infrastructure.

Jon Pieper has worked hard in the restaurant business and understands these tax difficulties. He knows the value of education and the importance of not borrowing from schools. He knows about farming. Please join me in supporting Jon Pieper for Minnesota House 28B. We can do better for Fillmore County.
