Like most in my generation, I am reluctant to engage myself in the political process. In this era of big money interests and emotionally-charged rhetoric, it’s incredibly difficult to find a candidate that I can actually trust as a person. This August, however, I will be voting for the first time in my life – for Jim Abeler.

Elections on Aug. 5 will give voters a chance to name their candidate by party for the Nov. 4 national elections. My request is to take a hard look at Republican Jim Abeler, Anoka, a 16-year member of Minnesota House of Representatives. Jim earned a host of awards and accolades for his legislative work, done because he is an individual who knows how to pull opposing members together for meaningful and fair legislation. In this time of contention by both parties, Jim is one who will be a factor as U.S. senator just as he has done at the state level.

In the June 20 issue of the ACUH, Barb Anderson of Champlin offered proof responding to my previous letter regarding the U.S. being a Christian Nation. She supplied some examples; I offer the following comments on some of them:

With all that’s wrong with Washington, is sending another lawyer lobbyist to D.C. going to fix anything? Is Tom Emmer really the best choice to replace Michele Bachmann? Name one thing Emmer has accomplished?

I am writing to get the word out that the City Council of Oak Grove is going to have a final vote on June 30th, 2014 for a “ conditional use permit.” The permit is for an insurance auto auction business to operate out of the former lumber facility located at County Highway 22 (Viking Boulevard) and Tamarack Street Northwest. The permit will allow them to have approximately 3,000 damaged insurance vehicles at the facility to auction.

I have been fighting for some time to make this a public affair but I can no longer stand the bullying that our small businesses are receiving from the city of Nowthen Council.
