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: city wide meeting request

Having read the Oakdale-Lake Elmo Review Wednesday May 21st article about the Lake Elmo neighborhood parks meeting schedule, I wish to respectfully request that the city of Lake Elmo also have a citywide meeting for all residents that addresses the total transformation of the city to everyone at the same time.

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.

Letter: Sour Grapes and Non Partisanship

Ms. Fliflet’s recent letter stated I am engaged in partisan politics.  During her two unsuccessful council applications I recall partisanship was her selling point, but I digress. While she gives no examples I assume she makes this accusation simply because we disagree, therefore not worthy of “nonpartisanship”.

Letter: 'New days in Lake Elmo'

In her March 12 letter, former Lake Elmo Mayor Sue Dunn critiques the city council in several areas. Foremost: ‘open and honest information’ is needed.
The facts on this and other musings suggest otherwise.
