Letter: Reduce gov't. by cutting spending
The citizen lobbyist Kathryn Berg has obvious special interest ties to the Legislature if she's spending a great deal of time there. (Re: "Lohmer 'Viewpoint' full of conjecture," Bulletin, April 1.) Common citizens work full-time to pay their bills and tax demands, and have no...

Letter: Lohmer 'Viewpoint' full of conjecture
I am glad that "Viewpoint" (columns) are called that, and not presented as fact, because Kathy Lohmer's Viewpoint ("'Truth' or 'spin' - Decide for yourself," Bulletin, March 25) is full of inaccuracies and is based on ideology and conjecture. For example, a quick Google search revealed...

Letter: An open letter to DFL representatives
Dear Kathy, Marsha and Julie. It appears that all the DFL proposals to solve our state budget problem so far have included a tax increase. I'd like to share my feelings with you and our Woodbury taxpayers. Our tax system, both the state and the federal, is bad and increasingly reliant...

Letter: 4-H cut takes money out of local economy
Recently, I spoke with one of the Washington County commissioners, pointing out that the 4-H program helps to bring more then $200,000 of consumer spending into Woodbury from people who live in other counties. The money is spent here because these families bring their kids to participate...

Letter: Turn public goods into private goods?
Many Minnesotans consider paying taxes to fund government services wrong. Early Minnesotans considered some services important enough to all citizens that they used taxes to share the costs. These services were seen as public goods. A strong university doing research, educating...

Letter: Good job county commissioners
Saving the (county) taxpayers $1.4 million is a wonderful achievement -- although how you achieved this does raise a few questions. I guess, that the elimination of 21 full time jobs is a good thing, except latter we are told that 19 of those positions are already vacant. So I...

Letter: Goodwill letter had no good will
This message is for Mr. Lichty, who expressed disgust about Goodwill coming to our fine city. As the citizens of Woodbury welcome Goodwill's support for our neighbors in need, I am sure many would be willing to help you pack your bags for your move to Edina. For your sake I hope...

Letter: Economics 101 suggested
At the (Feb. 23) Town Hall Meeting in Woodbury, I noticed that almost all of the people asking that programs not be cut, or who favored raising taxes, were people who either received benefits or were being paid through government programs. It was also interesting when Tom Dippel...
