Southern Minnesota deserves new representation

Otto Luknic, Faribault Daily News -

To the editor:

As a supporter, I was pleased to see Jim Hagedorn announce he would be running for congress against Tim Walz. Southern Minnesota needs a new voice to represent our interests and not the interests of the Twin Cities' liberals or Washington lobbyists.

Tim Walz has been in office for 10 years and, in that time, wages have remained stagnant, illegal immigration is out of control, federal bureaucrats pile more and more regulations on our farmers and our national debt has skyrocketed over $18 trillion.

We can do better. Our children and grandchildren deserve better. Tim Walz has had 10 years and failed. It's time for new leadership. Let's send Jim Hagedorn to Washington to clean up the mess Walz helped create.
