Rep. Haley: Highs and lows of the 2019 sessions

Last week, Minnesota’s new, two-year state budget was signed into law.

Letter: Haley's fraud column misleads

Apr 10, 2019
To the editor: I would appreciate it if the editor would take time to investigate significant concerns for the community, rather than pass along hearsay rumors from a biased political hack. Fox 9 carried a series of reports in May of 2018 based on false statements by Scott Stillman, a...

Letter: Lori Ann Clark is a uniter

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: Politics have become much more divided lately. No one seems to come to the middle to find real solutions to the problems we face. We’re all losers in this game of partisan politics. I support Lori Ann Clark for Minnesota House of Representatives because she will work with others...

Letter: As GOP changed, so did my vote

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: I used to vote Republican. Those were the days when they were fiscally responsible and had the local citizens best interest in mind. That has all changed. They are no longer fiscally responsible, as demonstrated by the irresponsibly increased National debt, and their farm policies...

Letter: Beware of big money in local politics

Oct 18, 2018
To the editor: Big money is buying local elections. Beginning last summer big money lined the major streets of Lake City with huge red and white signs and stuffed our mailboxes with over a dozen large glossy fliers of their candidate. We all know that Barb Haley “promotes affordable housing” and...
