Open Forum: LeMieur wasn’t there


The annual meeting of Morrison County Township Officers was held last week. Every year topics of importance to rural residents are discussed there. Every year elected officials from the county and state come to listen and learn. Except this year.

This year, county officials came, but for the first time, no elected state officials were there. Mike LeMieur didn’t show up. He came last year, when he was campaigning, and told us he had “rural values”.
