Letter: A pay raise? Are you kidding me?
Well, what do you know? The Minnesota politicians can get something done. Even after costing Minnesota taxpayers millions of dollars with the shutdown of the state and a sex-scandal lawsuit, Minnesota senators voted themselves an $11,000-per-year pay raise. I thought it was a joke...

Letter: Pay raises needed for those who care for our elderly, developmentally disabled

Letter: Support the Minnesota Child Victims Act
Current law says child sexual abuse victims immediately know they are injured and have until age 24 to file a lawsuit. Considering it can take decades for victims to confront the abuse, statutes of limitation are woefully short and act as an arbitrary barrier to justice. I know because...

Letter: State's payment rate to nursing homes must increase
