Ward comments
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

I have been reading about how much John Ward does for his constituents. Here is

what I remember about John. Afew years ago his constituents voted against a


proposal that would have cost them $23,000,000. John didn’t like the way

that turned out so he wrote, carried, and voted for legislation taking away

our right to vote on it should it ever come up again. Guess what? It came up

the very next year,sailed througth without a referendum vote at a cost of $23

million to the taxpayers,

When I confronted him about it his reply was”even my wife doesn’t agree with

what i do all the time”.

That’s what I remember about what John does to his constituents.
