Ward to host gathering in Nisswa Thursday

Rep. John Ward, DFL-Brainerd, is urging a focus on jobs and property tax relief for a “Clock is Ticking Tour.”

Ward plans a stop at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at the Nisswa Gazebo on the Paul Bunyan State Trail, just off Main Street in Nisswa.

The Legislature is on a 10-day break. Ward said with less than a month remaining in the session, he is making a last call to avoid a “do-nothing session and focus on issues that matter to Minnesotans.”

In a news release, Ward said he will “ask the GOP-led Legislature to unite with him and drop the distractions, and focus on job creation, middle-class property tax relief, and making education a priority by fully paying back our kids.”
