Constitution Day, sometimes known as “Citizenship Day," is coming up. It started as “I am an American” Day in 1940, then the date was changed to correspond with the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787.
I am writing in support of Kelly Morrison’s re-election for state representative in District 33B. Specifically I want to highlight her commitment to veterans and our first responders.
I am voting for Julia Coleman in the District 47 race for the Minnesota State Senate. The only candidate in this race with elected experience, Julia Coleman has already made a positive impact in Carver County while serving on the Chanhassen City Council.
Beyond the Yellow Ribbon of Chaska is a diverse group of citizens and community leaders uniting key areas within local communities to leverage existing support activities, build awareness and take action to recognize and support service members and military families.
This election season, it is time to really hear what our candidates have to say, and publically. You cannot assume that an endorsed Republican supports Trump and you cannot assume that the endorsed Democrat will take your guns.
We are "Vets for Matt." We have considered all candidates for Carver County Commissioner, District 3 and proudly support Matt Udermann (running for the seat currently held by Randy Maluchnik). Contact me directly if you’d like to join the growing list (email@example.com).
I support Andrew Myers for Minnesota House. Andrew is a small business owner, licensed attorney, former city council member, husband and a father of four. His desire to make his community and everyone in it better is unmatched.
For the first time in my life, I’m excited about a State Senate race. In particular, I’m excited about being represented by Addie Miller. For so long, issues in Carver County have been ignored at the Capitol. Now, I am optimistic that citizens will be heard!
‘Why can’t we hear from both candidates,’ is a top-asked campaign question. Many have suggested a friendly candidate forum; unscripted, unfiltered and speaking directly to you (the voter and collective stakeholder). I’m in. It’s time.
To avoid further embarrassment to the residents of the city of Victoria, I will not give ink to the mayor's name, only to say that I sat in shock and disbelief as I listened to this elected official spew nonsense, misinformation and personal attacks during the July 27 Victoria City Council meeting.
Everyone is desperate for normalcy, no one wants to hear this. Fortunately I think we still have time to start over. Because I want my grandchildren to live as long as I have, I hope we do start over with the quarantine and apply what we have learned.
I first met Julia Coleman when she visited my office to discuss the inclusion of hydroelectric power as a Minnesota renewable energy resource. Later, she came to the Capitol to share innovative, emerging medical device technology.
I spoke out about equity in schools because it is clear to me that this agenda is political, it is anti-American, and it should be nowhere near our kids. Ms. Erickson describes equity as simply giving children “what they need to find success.” (“Time to hold elected official accountable,” July 30.)
I’m proud of relationships developed with neighbors, business owners, elected officials and more for the benefit of taxpayers. (“Experience to guide us through difficult time,” July 30.)
In March, Gov. Tim Walz demonstrated sophisticated leadership by informing Minnesota of what needed to be done, and why. He harmoniously directed Minnesota’s stay-at-home orders while collaborating with federal agencies to ensure Minnesota could handle a sudden outbreak.
In 2020, Republicans need a candidate who can do two things: fight for our rights and grow our party, so we can undo the ground the DFL is gaining in Carver County. I am supporting Julia Coleman for the Minnesota State Senate in the Aug. 11 primary because I firmly believe she can do just that.
As a three-year resident of this beloved community, I would like to share my thoughts on our current leadership. Over the last year, my eyes have been opened to a disturbing side of Victoria that I never saw.
I believe strongly that the younger generation currently involved in raising children in a complicated world filled with political divisiveness and now the COVID-19 pandemic must be supported in their efforts to engage in policy making and civic leadership. They are our hope for the future o…
The economic turmoil and health crisis of 2020 will impact the Carver County budget and services for years to come; Randy Maluchnik is the candidate with the experience, ideas, and compassion to help our community.
We live in a country which provides us with many rights and privileges. Freedom to move throughout the country, freedom of speech, freedom to choose religion, educational opportunities, employment, housing and, in this election year, the right to vote.
We all want to live in a community where we can raise our families and feel safe whether we are Black or white, Latino or Asian, Native or newcomer.
The letter to the editor in last week’s Chaska Herald (“Not the choice anymore” July 16) is such a poor and uninformed take by the former mayor of Carver – specifically, the author’s fifth paragraph where he targets public employees who serve their communities over the course of a career.
