In her Oct. 31 letter, Barb Anderson again uses claims from websites such as David Barton’s Wallbuilders that just do not stand up to scrutiny. Barton and others publish Christian nation “proofs” that are either logical fallacies or distortions. Not one proves this is a “Christian nation.” In fact, only one item even mentions Christ.

I own a home in Coon Rapids. The city came to me and said the main is leaking under my driveway. They told me they have to tear up my driveway to repair the water leak. I said OK. Guess what? There was no water leak. I asked the city to repair my driveway like it was before all this started.

Two years ago I came out of retirement and ran for election to the Minnesota Senate in District 37. I did that because the partisan gridlock in St. Paul was harming our state, and we need good government that would act positively for everyone. I knew that shutting down our state government and simply blocking everything helped no one. Voters agreed and chose me to represent them.

I strongly encourage you to vote for Jerry Koch for mayor of Coon Rapids. I have known Jerry Koch for the last 18 years and officed with him for six or seven of those years, as well as serving overlapping terms on the Epiphany Parish Council with him.

It may be nothing or it may point to a very important difference between the DFL and GOP parties. At the Minnesota State Fair their respective booths were very different. One must enter the GOP booth. At the GOP booth a person very likely would be challenged especially if you wore or carried anything that may look liberal. It turned out they even refused entry to one of their own endorsed candidates.
