Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: In a debate between Tim Schmidt and Urban Otremba, I would like to ask Tim about his campaign strategies as it appears all of his ideas and topics seem to parrot what Urban stands for. It is very confusing as Urban has already accomplished these matters for the city and library. I [...]

To the Editor: Remember when Republicans were crying that Minnesota would lose our businesses to other states because of our taxes and regulations?

To the Editor: Reading the platforms of the at-large candidates (Sept. 28 issue) makes Tim Schmidt’s sound like his former father-in-law’s platform. If there is a difference, it’s a very fine line. I find nothing original in Tim’s platform. — Barbara Otremba, Little Falls

Kresha says he supports education, but the truth is he voted against funding education. Kresha says he supports rural broadband access, but the truth is he voted against funding it.

To the Editor: I previously served a term on the Pierz City Council and also spent two years as the Upsala City Clerk, so I understand the importance of having an effective working relationship with the County Auditor/Treasurer’s office. It is extremely important that the voters elect someone with real government experience, and that is [...]
