Elect Ward

Elect Ward

When my dog Penni was killed in a recklessly set conibear trap last December

I contacted John Ward.

The laws governing the use of those lethal traps are

so lax they defy common sense for such a deadly device. I expected a

response because John Ward is known for responding to constituents so it

didn’t surprise me when I saw his reply in my email list.

What did surprise me was that despite already having a full schedule he had

immediately started working on improving the lax trapping regulations that

are killing so many of our dogs every fall. It’s clear that he understands

the meaning of public service.

Unfortunately, all attempts to fix the regulations failed on mostly party line

votes but it wasn’t from lack of effort on John Ward’s part. We need to

send John back to St. Paul because St. Paul needs more hard working

legislators who understand the meaning of public service.
