Bachmann tells it like it is, unlike Jim Graves

To the editor:

Jim Graves is at it again, running around saying Michele Bachmann is a show horse, not a workhorse. I wonder if a show horse could have ended the gridlock that was preventing a new bridge for Stillwater for 50 years?

Would a show horse be able to bring together all levels of government to support infrastructure improvements for two of the most-used highways in Central Minnesota? Is it a show horse that works with St. Paul to protect Medicare dollars? And, would a show horse be sent to represent all of Congress in London at a state funeral for a former Prime Minster?

We’ve heard this before, Jim, it wasn’t true last November and it’s still not true today.

Michele Bachmann makes the Sixth District her top priority and her numerous meetings and events in 2013 go to show that her concerns are the families and businesses in Minnesota. Jim Graves will say whatever he can to get elected. The problem is, none of it is true. This indicates also that Jim Graves would more than likely be deceptive with regard to information coming out of Washington.

We can count on  Michele Bachmann to tell us like it is.

Sister Saturday is a feather in Waconia’s cap

To the editor:

What a party! Sister Saturday was fabulous. Thanks to all the vendors who endured all that wind, all the guests who visited the farm, the elves who made the event exceptional, Jim Gilbert with his book signing, Duane Otto container gardening, and to Kellie Sites, Waconia Chamber of Commerce president, for her great leadership.

It’s a great community that we have.
