Bob Barrett - Standing for School Funding Equity

Letters to Editors's picture

To the editor:

For the last two years, our voice has been heard at the Minnesota Legislature. Since Bob Barrett took a stand that our schools will no longer be neglected due to Minneapolis special interests, we have seen measurable improvements in both funding for our schools and policies that put the decision making back in the hands of parents, teachers and school districts.


Bob helped pass more productive K-12 spending that allowed six to eight jobs per district to be saved. He has been one of the most approachable and available legislators local school officials have seen in years. He always takes time to meet Chisago County parents and teachers when they call or go to the capitol. Bob cares about the kids, the families and the businesses that employ Chisago County’s hardworking people.

 Bob has said one of his highest priorities is to correct the unfair funding system that has continually benefited Minneapolis schools at the cost of Chisago County school kids simply because of where they live.

We need Bob Barrett in the Minnesota House. Vote for Bob Barrett Nov. 6. He truly is our hometown voice.

At the risk of violating

At the risk of violating party rules, shouldn't  something be done about Senator Nienow?  However nice a man he is, he's utterly dead politically.  Surely there's someone with business and free-market acumen who can fill the seat.  Let's at least have the discussion.

Letters to Editors!

Have a letter you've written to local papers? Tired of being shut out and not heard? Send your letters to us, along with the date you submitted it and the papers you've submitted it to. Don't forget to tell us whether or not they printed it. Let yourself be heard!

Guidelines - should speak for themselves. No profanity, no libellous comments. The same letter must be sent that was submitted to the papers. Your contact info must be included as it was to the papers - your name, precint, and contact number in case we need to verify. We will not publish your contact information on the blog (it will appear as "first name, last initial, precint"), but we must differentiate between our local residents and spammers. Most papers have a limit of 250 words; we suggest that you try to stay close to those limits. As always, we may edit the content for space or clarity only without altering your context.

*Please note - this blog is for letters that were submitted to local papers for printing. If you'd just like to send us your letter without submitting, we suggest you sign up and start your own blog, where there is no 250 word limit. You may also take advantage of our forums section as well to sound off and let people know what you think.
