* David Hann *
Earlier in July, CD3 resident Sen. David Hann (Eden Prairie-Minnetonka, SD48, R) spoke at an event on how he’s supporting Donald Trump and bi-partisanship. We have to say that for one of the architects of the State Government Shutdown of 2011 when Republicans controlled both the State House and State Senate, he really didn’t learn what bi-partisanship really is.
Please click the play icon. Sen. Hann begins his endorsement, etc. at around the 1:45 mark.
In an email sent yesterday David Hann expressed his support for Adam Seidel & Murshid Barud for Eden Prairie School Board:
I have received a number of messages asking my opinion of the candidates fortomorrow’s EP School Board election. As a former school board member, I think those elected play a vital role in the governance of our schools. Fortunately, I believe we have some good people who have decided to run this year.
There are two candidates I have known for some time, and for whom I intend to vote; Murshid Barud and Adam Seidel. Murshid has been very active in local and state politics and was a strong support for me in my last election. He is a Republican, and given the changing demographics in Eden Prairie, he would play an important role as a member of the Board. Adam Seidel is also a Republican and has been politically active. He will make a strong connection with many of the younger families who have moved into Eden Prairie in recent years.
Please join me in supporting these two candidates for Eden Prairie School Board.
Karen Kaplan with the Los Angeles Times, reprinted in the June 4, 2015, Minneapolis Star Tribune reports on a recent study that “nearly 30 percent of cases of depression among adults” can be traced by to bullying during childhood.
So, thanks again to the House and Senate DFL Caucuses for their work to pass the Safe and Supportive Schools act.
And, when it comes to the 2016 election, remember that our House District 48B Representative, Jenifer Loon, and Senate District 48 Senator David Hann both voted against this bill.
Here’s a link to the above article.
A lot of Republican elected officials are quick to cite percentages rather than dollars when talking about taxes and how those rich people are so put upon by the government. Our own Sen. David Hann is one of those who’s fast to toss out percentages, hoping people won’t have the background to respond.
Well, we found a great video that debunks the above. We posted a link on social media yesterday, but felt on this Tax Day, it was important to get the truth out there. Please take the 3 minutes to watch this:
At the Saturday, April 11, 2015 Minnesota Republican convention, SD48’s own Sen. David Hann spoke to the group. In his speech, he said the Senate DFL was levied the largest campaign finance fine in history. Rachel Stassen-Berger, the Capitol Bureau Chief and Reporter for the St. Paul Pioneer Press immediate responded with this:
Last month, it was reported that his party is in major arrears to vendors for the 2014 campaign. Here’s a post from the StarTribune detailing that situation.
Today (April 14, 2015), the StarTribune details the $26,000 fine the Minnesota GOP was given by the FEC for not disclosing receipts, payments and debts in 2009 and 2011. The FEC also fined the Minnesota GOP $170,000 for misrepresenting debts.
The StarTribune reports that the FEC has warned the party again that it must straighten out its paperwork for 2014 by May 15, 2015. The article also details the $1.40 million the party is still in debt.
Again, which organization is the party of fiscal responsibility and able to manage money better? It might have been the GOP at one time. Folks, it isn’t now. And, when push comes to shove, there is prevarication at best.
