6-26-14 Waconia Patriot Letters to the Editor

Frey would keep the

government accountable


To the editor:


What is our role in government?

I take it as a high privilege to be involved in local politics in the Republican Party. It is not hard to find people who are ready to provide their ideas for the future of Minnesota, without regard for what is already established.

There seems to be more people who want to add to the powers that be than there are who want to preserve what has already been passed down to us. We don’t need more politicians in our state government who assault our liberty and private property; we need people who will uphold what is already established. The constitutions of the United States and Minnesota are the highest civil authority in the land and must be protected.

Our communities require people who know that government is accountable to “We the People.” The Constitution protects my person and property from people who would take them away from me. Many people seem to think that they are accountable to the state house, when truly the state house is accountable to my house and your house.

When we elect people for office they are to serve us; not lord over us. I revere my constitutional rights such as free speech and press, the right to bear arms, the freedom to innovate and discover, and many more.

I want sound representation that will honor the Constitution and the people it protects. That is why I will vote for Bob Frey in the Primary on Aug. 12.

NYA resident appreciates Waconia’s recent gesture


To the editor:


Due to the recent flooding, our water treatment plant in Norwood Young America had to be taken offline, leaving us with the inability to shower. In the middle of Waconia’s own state of emergency, Mayor Jim Nash arranged for his neighbors to the southwest to use the showers at Safari Island free of charge. All we had to do is show our driver’s license.

I would just like to express my gratitude for the kindness of Mayor Nash and the city of Waconia, and I think I speak for all the residents of Norwood Young America.
