DFL48 | Restoring Common Sense Minnesota Values

TAG | sd48

The StarTribune has endorsed Steve Cwodzinski for the SD48 seat in an endorsement appearing on their website October 31, 2016, and in print November 1, 2016:

steve-cwod-startribune-endorsed-2016Senate GOP Minority Leader David Hann is in the toughest re-election fight of his 14-year legislative career for two good reasons. One: Hann’s positions on issues — particularly on Southwest light rail — are out of sync with those of many residents in his Eden Prairie district. And two: He has an uncommonly appealing opponent in DFLer Steve Cwodzinski.

Our nod goes to challenger Cwodzinski, a recently retired government teacher at Eden Prairie High School. Hann’s dedication to public service and his willingness to shoulder leadership responsibilities for his caucus in the past four years are admirable. But Eden Prairie would be well-served by the passion for public problem-solving that Cwodzinski would bring to the Legislature.

Cwodzinski reminded us of another educator who took on an entrenched Republican incumbent. Like the late U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, Cwodzinski, 58, exudes infectious enthusiasm for democracy and optimism about its potential to make lives better. (more…)

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:

Sen. Hann and RPM Again Stretches Truth on Ethics and Money

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.
