Fiscal responsibility


In response to the article in Open Forum on May 4, criticizing the work of Rep. John Ward and DFL fiscal responsibility.

It’s not the DFL that is being evicted for not paying their rent and bills.

It was not Rep. John Ward and the DFL that is costing us millions by causing the state shut down. (also in the May 4 Dispatch)

It is not Rep. Ward or the DFL that keeps the Legislature in recess to cost more.
