To the Editor:
In the 2014 legislative session, Rep. Kresha kept to his word of advocating for District 9B and prioritizing infrastructure investment over excessive spending. The 2014 capital investment bill dedicated $113 million for roads and bridges, $126 million for the renovation of the State Capitol and $1.7 million to the Minnesota Veterans Trail in Morrison County. The Veterans Trail will be a Morrison County asset and economic driver. His bipartisan approach helped secure the needed investment into District 9B and he voted for the bill.
Kresha has proven time and time again that he opposes excessive spending projects, like the $89 million Senate Office Building. Instead he focused his priorities and votes on investment for District 9B and growing the rural economy, not growing government. Two years ago no one was asking for an $89 million building for part-time legislators. But we are paying for it.
I support Kresha’s fiscal common sense and I am proud to vote for him for re-election, Nov. 4. — Nancy Christensen, Little Falls
