I grew up in the Aitkin area — Hassman corner. I graduated in 1965 and went to trade school. I worked in the machine trades for over 35 years, went through a plant closing and moved back to the Aitkin area in 2002.
One of the things that I have been thinking about is that when we are bringing up our children and grandchildren is to teach them to tell the truth. Do not slander people. After teaching them this, they get exposed to negative political ads. And we also encourage them to get involved. This must give them a mixed message.
I have been watching the DFL Candidates from Senate District 10 and County District 8 and am pleased to see that they are sticking to the facts and presenting plans for the future that are good for all people, not just the few.
I will vote for people I can trust. Senator Amy Klobuchar, Rick Nolan for Congress, Taylor Stevenson for state Senate and Joe Radinovich for state House of Representatives.
