To the editor: 

On Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Government Venter in Red Wing there will be a public meeting to discuss the proposed 2019 budget and proposed 9 percent tax increase. I would like to invite residents of Goodhue County to attend and give their input in regards to the 2019 proposed budget.

Thank you to the many residents who have already discussed their concerns and suggestions with me. I look forward to hearing from many more of you at the pubic meeting about your concerns and suggestions. Hope to see you there.

The current proposed budget can be found at

Please contact me at 507-990-7578 with any questions or concerns.
