I am a working person and one of the many disenfranchised by the actions of 6th District U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann.
I also have learned from paycheck to paycheck that members of the U.S. House and Senate of both parties have left millions of us out in the cold.
That's why I find it refreshing that we have a candidate like Bob Olson running for Congress in the 6th District.
Olson is not just another slick politician or professional lobbyist. He is an individual who, as a tax attorney and community banker, understands three of the major issues confronting working people:
A predatory corporate financial system.
An unjust tax system that favors the rich and corporations at our expense.
Our addiction to oil and its adverse social, economic, political and environmental consequences that fall on ordinary working people.
Olson has the knowledge, skills and ability to improve our quality of life.
He is an intelligent, honest, hardworking and plainspoken man whose core beliefs are grounded in social, economic and political fairness and justice for all residents of the district.
He is not afraid to tackle tough issues, to stand on principle, and he is not just another politician or lobbyist representing special interest groups or corporations.
... Bachmann's term in office has been a disaster for working people. Bob Olson is the best possible candidate to replace her.
Ordinary working people can make a difference through our active participation in the DFL Precinct Caucuses, as Bob Olson delegates to our DFL Senate District conventions and DFL 6th District Convention, and, ultimately, by voting for Bob Olson to be our congressman.
Exactly, with precinct caucuses coming up February 5th, its becoming more and more important to show the differences between Bob Olson, Elwyn Tinklenberg and Michelle Bachmann.
Mr. Kaehler nailed it. Bob's not the slick lobbyist with political aspirations that will in turn, be the Congressional Representative of the corporations and special interests. Olson will be a Congressman of the people.
