Letter: Candidate will 'focus on the people's work'
Minnesota is famous for its clean lakes and its clean politics. But the shine came off our political reputation when state government was shut down by partisan politics in 2005. I want to serve as your state legislator because I believe I can help restore civility and common sense...

Letter: We should stop playing politics with health care

Letter: Once again, Peterson doesn't tell both sides of the story
As has been his custom during our previous two election races, Richard Peterson is attempting to distort my record on supporting property tax relief through partisan bickering. As usual, there are two sides to the story. Last session alone, I helped approve a bill that provides a...

Letter: Hamilton not afraid to take a stand
Recently, Richard Peterson wrote a letter to this newspaper bemoaning the fact that legislative leaders are touting a measly one percent funding increase for our schools. Good for him. Peterson is right to call the DFL leaders of the Minnesota House and Senate on the carpet for...
