Gov. Dayton vetoes education bill

Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed the K-12 education funding bill last week because it did not provide funding for one of his pet issues — mandatory preschool for 4-year-olds.
 We understand the governor has the right to veto bills he feel are unacceptable, but one would hope it would be for better reasons.

Why isn’t the city following the Chamber’s advice?

To the Editor:
This past week (May 20), I was driving in the area of 13th and Hennepin. Stopping at the stop sign, I noticed a portable advertising sign standing on the city-owned lot stating,   “Keep Glencoe vibrant: shop locally.” Not knowing the owner of the sign, I did some checking. It was promoted by  Glencoe Chamber Of Commerce.
As you may remember, in January 2015, our city elected a new member to our city government (Mr. Robeck). He’s been asking time and time again why our city is not buying and doing business locally.
