Thank you to Julie Bunn, Kathy Saltzman and Marsha Swails for your four years of outstanding service.
This result is no “shock,” given the Republican wave across the country as well as the huge amounts spent by outside special interest groups on negative campaign pieces.
It will be interesting to watch these hard right wingers govern the next two years. Be prepared for unprecedented increases in property taxes.

is ward for real? has he forgotten about the negative (scurilous) ads run by outside leftist interest groups such as the one about the 1991 emmer DWI? as to property taxes, ward apparently thinks that it’s a good thing to get everybody to pay for local services from which he benefits. which is not to say that property taxes are without problems. it is to say, however, that there are too many folks like ward who like a free ride, getting others to pay for his bennies so that he won’t have to pay as much (if anything)..

Thomas, reread my post. I am referencing only the District 56 elections, as that is what the article is about.
You have certainly made a lot of assumptions about me.
I’d be happy to buy you a shift key so you can properly capitalize.

tim, your post did not make it clear that you were referring to dist 56 only. but even if you were,so what? the real point is a more general point: there were many outside groups that inserted themselves into mn (and nationwide) political races (dist 56 included). moreover, to imply that so-called right wing groups are the only culprits in this regard (whether in dist 56 or elsewhere) entails, shall we say,a double standard, perhaps even a bit of hypocrisy. anyway, what specific groups did you have in mind? and how do you define “negative”? as to any misconstrual of your assumptions, i think that your comments re property taxes speak for themselves: if property taxes are such a bad thing, it follows, i think, that local government should be supported to a great (or greater) extent by statewide or even nationwide general revenues. weakening local control/responsibility and giving the impression that the proverbial free lunch is, well, really a free lunch. it’s called shifting the burden (among other things).finally, i think that you could find something more substantive to comment on than my presumed ignorance of the shift key. many people who post these days use all lower case: it simply saves time.
