Letter writer: "Are you tired of the same old politics?"
Thursday, October 11, 2012
To the editor, Do you live in Lakeville's House of Representatives District 58A? Are you tired of the same old politics? Too many politicians seem to use confrontation rather than cooperation to try to govern. Maybe it's just me, but they seem to listen to their parties more than to their constituents. Colin Lee is listening to District 58A constituents. He is working hard to become State Representative for the District. If you live in District 58A, you may have already spoken to Colin. He has been out knocking on doors. If he hasn't knocked on your door yet, let him know how you feel when he does. He's a good listener!

When redistricting blew up the current political map, Lakeville's State Rep. Mary Liz Holberg (R-District 36A) was faced with a decision. Stay or move. Her current district—36A—was slid to the west and north and renamed 56B. It also meant if she stayed in that district, she'd represent a bunch of Burnsville and very little of Lakeville, her hometown. But in the shifting of political boundaries, the bulk of Lakeville, and Holberg's old territory, was left inside a new district called 58A. It's part of State Sen. Dave Thompson's (R-District 36) new district and most importantly, it's a district that is vacant. In an email, Holberg, the current House Ways and Means Committee chair, cleared up any confusion over what she intends to do. She's …
