As we saw during the whole stadium fracas, the Ramsey County Commission is as spendthrift a body as exists anywhere in Minnesota politics; but for the fact that it lacks the clout on Capitol Hill that the Downtown Minneapolis Brotherhood musters, the citizens of RamCo could be stuck with the tab for Zygi’s Playhouse.
And so we need some new blood on the Ramco Commission.
Sue Jeffers is holding a fundraiser tonight at the Blair House (Selby and Western in Saint Paul). It’s going to feature appearances by Bob Davis and Tom Emmer from some inferior talk station. You can register in advance (or just leave a donation if you can’t attend) if you’d like!
By the way, out on the East Side Dennis Dunnigan is running a very good campaign for Commissioner as well. This is a very winnable seat. If you can help him with time or money, by all means do.
