No help from Gazelka


On Wednesday, Rep. John Ward had a hearing in the House government committee on H.F. 157, the proposal for a veteran’s home in Brainerd. Council member Lucy Nesheim and I joined Rep. Ward in testifying before the committee. Dozens of local volunteers have been working on this project for over four years. There is support from local units of government, and veteran’s service clubs from some 40 miles around us.
