"People's rights were violated, and they never got their due process. It's wrong," said Ken Posusta. Posusta's brother, Jonathan, is a McLeod County farmer, and is purchasing 230 acres owned by their parents. That property is being affected by the pipeline.
"People's property is one of the most important things to their livelihood," said Posusta. "They (the pipeline company) need to be held to a higher ethical and moral standard."
I love how many of the GOP members in both the House and Senate cite individual rights when it comes to smoking bans, but when a pipeline comes through our district and people are coerced, they sit around and do nothing.
I have stepped up my actions in the pipeline issue. All of our locally elected officials have gotten a letter from me and I am also awaiting a response from the Attorney General's office.
