To the Editor:
Representative Bob Barrett is a proven defender of the taxpayer. His work these past two years has helped make government more efficient and cost effective by consolidating agencies and operations. He helped eliminate welfare fraud by ensuring assistance goes to the needy and the program money is used properly.
Bob helped pass legislation to empower consumers in health care choices by allowing a portion of MNCare enrollees to access private insurance.
At least two of the bills Bob authored were passed unanimously by the House.
This is a sign of Bob’s ability to work with all legislators to pass good legislation.
Bob is a numbers guy with an analytical mind which is exactly the expertise we need at the capitol; legislators who will look logically at the facts and make common sense decisions with the taxpayer dollar.
Chisago County has a voice in St. Paul will advocate for our county, our school and our taxpayers. That voice is Bob Barrett.
