At taxpayer expense, the city offices of Lake Elmo have duplicated the good work of the Oakdale Lake Elmo Review, the Stillwater Gazette and the St. Paul Pioneer Press by funding another “Candidate Profile” section in a citywide newsletter.
Stan Karwoski has been a wonderful example of what a community leader is to Oakdale and surrounding areas. He dedicates his time to volunteering and countless hours bettering the Oakdale community during his 12 years as a city councilman.
Five years ago, as newlyweds, my husband and I saved and saved to buy a home. We wanted to put down roots in a great community, Oakdale, and start a family. The Minnesota mortgage interest deduction made our dream a reality. As a young couple, every dollar matters and the state mortgage interest deduction not only made our home more affordable, but it also allowed us to save for our next move.
If you’re a citizen of Oakdale and want an honest, organized and clear vision to your city then vote for Marty Jurgensen. He is a fresh and truly sincere candidate who wll listen to your voice on issues concerning our city.
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.
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.
