Citizen council not needed

We are all so busy trying to figure who to vote for, or vote against, in the presidential election that we may not be aware of a proposed amendement to the Minnesota Constitution, which also will be on the Nov. 8 ballot.
The proposal would take away the state Legislature’s ability to set the salaries for state senators and representatives, and would instead delegate that task to a 16-member citizen council.

People deserve more than legislative gridlock

To the Editor:
The fact that we had no special legislative session this summer shouldn’t surprise anyone, since it followed two years of inaction by the state Legislature. Obviously, the people now representing us are incapable of getting the job done, so it’s time for them to be replaced.
After two years of wrangling, we were left with no property tax relief, no transportation bill, and no public works or bonding bill, all of which hurt rural Minnesota much more than the metro, and why? Light rail.

Despite increased revenue, tax hike is proposed

To the Editor:
The political spin is under way to explain that the 5 percent proposed McLeod County levy increase for 2017 is reasonable. To put this into perspective, we first need to go back three years.

Lots of activity in, around GSL school buildings

As we enter into the middle of October, we have a short week because of the Education Minnesota Conference break and holding parent-teacher conferences. While there will be no school for our students on those days, there will still be lots of activity in and around our schools. Construction will continue, and progress is being made each and every day.
