To the editor:
I’m tired of all these false, negative mailers we’ve gotten accusing candidates of wasteful spending in previous terms of office and other phony attempts meant to discredit. Republican incumbents promised a budget for “living within our means”; instead we got a budget that borrows billions from our schools, protects tax loopholes for big corporations, and puts the budget deficit on a credit card. They are offering more of the same if re-elected. They have shown no interest in helping middle-income people.
Jim Carlson has been a champion for funding for our schools that will let all our kids develop their full potential. Sandra Masin has been a leader in small business development with appropriate state projects to maximize broadband technology. Their support for projects around the arts and environment was in response to voters passing amendments for those priorities in 2008.
Jim and Sandra are not beholden to ALEC; their allegiance is to the people of Burnsville and Eagan. My choices are clear: I'm supporting Jim Carlson for the State Senate in District 51 and Sandra Masin in House District 51A.
