We Call on John Elder to Step Down From WMFB
By Andrew Richter
Well since we now have a citizen representing Crystal on the West Metro Fire Board (yippy!) it’s now time for New Hope to stop stacking the deck against the people they represent by doing the same.
City Manager Kirk McDonald (fresh off his 3rd straight 5% raise) and councilman and local DFLer Dan Stauner are already on the Board so there is no reason they can’t have a citizen fill the “citizen representative” role.
Come on New Hope, take a break from raising taxes, forcing high density housing, and jacking up utility costs to give US citizens a voice on OUR fire board!
