Polls show voters are giving elected officials a very low approval rating.

There are too many career politicians in all units of government, local, state and federal government.

Our taxes continue to increase, very little concern for the voters, promises are made and not kept.

James Wallin, Brainerd's mayor, is a prime example of a career politician. He has held an elected position as alderman and mayor for 36 consecutive years. Has voted and supported all tax increases, also supported the purchase of the hydro dam for over $6 million dollars. Electric rates will not decrease.

We voters can and should vote for Guy Green as Brainerd's mayor. Give Mr. Green an opportunity to provide badly needed leadership and fresh ideas. Voters have everything to gain and nothing to lose by voting for Guy Green.

We voters can change the way all units of our government operate by not voting for any of the incumbents that are on the ballot.
