Letter: Editorial board wrong about election

To the Editor:

I just read the ECM Editorial Board’s Nov. 15 opinion piece on the elections.

The irony of the vote is that the two levies for ISD 279 were voted down, but the state legislature went to the Democrats.

The Democrats will tax and spend the voters into the poorhouse as usual. The voters do not want a better school district, but they will let the Democrats squeeze every cent from them at the state level.

The reason we in Minnesota are paying for a new Vikings stadium is Dayton owes the unions (both public and private) for his election, and this will provide jobs to them. He also owes the teachers union for the same thing.

If voters think for one moment they will not be paying somehow for schools (read higher pensions), then they need to quit drinking the Kool-Aid. ECM’s Editorial Board says we need to trust Gov. Dayton to work with all legislators regardless of political party. That is absurd, as now with a majority in both houses he can ram more taxes down our throats without consulting any Republicans.

One other note — Joe Nathan mentioned KKK members at polling places but failed to mention Black Panthers also at polling places. I guess it depends on what side of the argument you are on. He should work for the TV media as then he can do what they all do best — tell one side of the story. Just for the record — either group at a polling place is wrong.
