Letter: Juhnke explains bonding vote

Published 03/19/2010, West Central Tribune

While I would argue it’s too early, it appears by a recent letter in this paper from a local Republican Party spokesperson that campaign season has already begun. I want to be clear — I voted against the final bonding bill because a critical project for our district was removed in negotiations with the governor. The Kandiyohi County veterans’ geriatric mental illness facility, a project many of us in the community have been working on for six years, was replaced with a similar project in Minneapolis the governor said he needed before he would sign the bill. My vote and my efforts on behalf of this facility demonstrate my commitment to representing the residents of our district and the veterans of this state.
