Stillwater and Oak Park Heights were smart enough to say no thanks to Housley and I don't remember driving past any gangs on my way to work this morning. On a more personal note, Matt, I hope you can try and come up with something accurate or informed to say at some point because right now your batting average is slumping just a bit.

Using Matt's brilliant reasoning I guess that would make Stillwater and OPH the "most dangerous and poor" areas. Right.

lol, democrats are the ones that pushed the republican legislators to offer a 12% increase in spending... Dayton wanted a 16% raise and held the state hostage for 20 days because the increases were not enough. The push over moderates should have held the line with no spending increases, then NO money would have been required to fund the democrat's plans. They just wave a wand and think the money will come from tax payers... they both avoid tax increases, so both parties agreed to take the money from almost the highest paid teacher unions in the country... there is no way the republicans could have done this without democrat votes and most of all Dayton. It's funny how democrats re-write history to fit their arguments.

lol, the republican majority that surrounds you in Washington County and cancels your votes can only prevent the reality of what voting democrats into power for 60 years eventually gets you. Look at any massive city in America, most counties in those cities vote liberal, now go to the most liberal county (ours is hennepin) and tour the utopia, walk the streets at night, and be sure to wear that bullet proof vest;) The "evil" rich people move out, the tax base dissappears, and all that's left is a wonderful majority of democrats lol.

Matt, your view is so narrow and naive. To use your language: lol, the democratic majority that surrounds you in Minnesota (governor, both houses) and cancels your votes in district 39 ensures that local initiatives will be at the bottom of the list for at least the next two years. It ensures that Housley and Lohmer will be footnotes at the bottom of the page, useless seat warmers in the legislature. Good luck to the local mayors who supported them -- they won't be getting any help on their municipal projects from the state level. As your friend Clint Eastwood might say, "Brilliant. just brilliant."
