To the Editor:
When we elect people to serve us in St. Paul and Washington, D.C., we expect them to work for our families. We have the expectation that our representatives will use their knowledge of government to help strengthen our communities and protect our quality of life.
Unfortunately for Distist 9B, Rep. Ron Kresha is not a legislator we can count on.
Beginning in September, all students will receive free, all-day kindergarten. Not only will this give kids the strong start at school they need, it will save families thousands of dollars a year. Rep. Kresha voted “no” on this education bill.
A recent non-partisan House Research report shows property taxes will drop by $49 million in 2014. It is the first decrease in property taxes since 2002. Yet when it came time to give 1 million Minnesotans property tax relief, Rep. Kresha voted “no.”
While Rep. Kresha talked a good game about providing a raise for people who care for people with disabilities and the elderly in our communities, when it came time for talk to turn to action, Rep. Kresha voted “no.”
If Rep. Kresha isn’t voting for our kids, property taxpayers and hard-working caregivers, who is he representing? — Roman Witucki, Little Falls
