Letter:  maintaining commitments

The Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2014 article in the Oakdale-Lake Elmo Review, “Oakdale candidates talk issues with business community” noted that mayoral candidate Marty Jurgensen “was unable to attend the forum held the morning of Thursday, Sept. 18.”  For my supporters and undecided voters I just want to clarify that the reason I was unable to attend was that I was at work.

Letter:  Minnesota’s leaders should join citizens and support climate action

On Tuesday July 22, 2014, I joined Minnesotans at the St. Paul State Office Building to show my support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan. Global warming isn’t just a threat to Minnesota’s future. It’s here now. We’ve already seen harsh winters, long droughts, and devastating floods like the ones we had a few weeks ago.

Letter: 'changes will improve our town'

In her letter denouncing the Lake Elmo Council (specifically sparing Anne Smith), Julie Fliflet regurgitates the tired charge of Lake Elmo’s “Fright Brigade” when she characterizes the council as..., you guessed it, favoring developers over residents.
Of course, no policies are evidenced, simply flaccid mischaracterizations.

Letter: 'low expectations'

City officials are elected to uphold the Constitution and its implementing laws.  Instead, many politicians ignore or rewrite laws to advance pet projects and politically motivated agendas.

Letter: 'Requesting city wide meeting'

Once again I respectfully request that a Lake Elmo City wide meeting be held to update all the residents on the fundamental transformation of the City of Lake Elmo. In addition, it would give our local elected and appointed officials the opportunity to meet their constituents.
