My OpEd in the Strib today: Minnesota's swamp needs draining, too. http://www.startribune.com/st-paul-needs-its-swamped-drained-just-as-much-as-washington/405096566/ Link
I'm proud to announce my campaign for Governor of Minnesota in 2018. See more at http://johnsonforgovernor.org
We have raised over $100,000 in just the first six weeks since the campaign was launched on May 10th. This does not include any personal loan or pledges--it is all cash in hand. Additionally, this amount is more than double what the 2014 campaign raised in the first six weeks. We are off to an extremely strong start, are grateful for the support shown by Minnesotans, and are excited about the future. --Team Johnson To learn more about Jeff, his principles, and where he stands on the issues please visit http://www.johnsonforgovernor.org/ #JoinTheFight2018 Link
Democrats and the media have been telling us for some time that Minnesota's economy, after six years of higher taxes and more government, is far superior to Wisconsin's, after six years of lower taxes and less government. Is it true?
Minneapolis is considering a fee on plastic grocery bags in order to help consumers "make better choices." First, the Minneapolis City Council is the last place I'd go for help with decision-making. Second, this is the biggest problem with government today: It's not government's job to help people "make better decisions" about their own lives. Government exists to serve people, not direct and control them. http://www.fox9.com/news/272525855-story
