Letter to the Editor
To the Editor:
Mayors in Greater Minnesota face some unique challenges: a shrinking tax base, population drain, and an aging population, among others. Ever since Tim Walz got to Congress, he has been working for Greater Minnesota, to help towns like ours grow.
He’s worked to promote renewable energy and bring high-paying, clean energy jobs to Greater Minnesota. He’s authored legislation to help young people get their start in agriculture, so that the next generation of farmers will be out on the land. And as a 24-year veteran, he’s worked to help improve patient care at facilities like our own Veterans Home right here in Luverne.
I’m supporting Tim Walz for governor because he works every day to make sure towns like Luverne have the resources they need to thrive. I hope you’ll join me in supporting the Walz-Flanagan team as our next governor and lieutenant governor.
Please vote Walz/Flanagan in the Aug. 14 primary.
Mayor Pat Baustian
