During my time as Mayor, I was constantly frustrated with state government because they always thought they knew how to serve our constituents better than we did at a local level.
I firmly believe that the best decisions are made closest to the people.
People should first work together to solve neighborhood problems. Local problems should be solved by local elected officials. If they can't solve them, it becomes a County solution and finally a State or Federal solution.
The State of Minnesota should not overreach or pre-empt local decisions.
