Barrett ‘doesn’t care about us’

To the editor

Recently there was a letter to the editor in this paper about Rep. Barrett running a picture of some Union Laborers and that the picture in the campaign brochure implied support for Rep. Barrett.

The union folks said they don’t support Rep. Barrett because he didn’t support the bonding bill. Well, it’s important to know that Chisago County has more union tradesmen and women than most counties in Minnesota.

The bonding bill is our bread and butter, it’s what keeps us going. Even if we’re not working on a bonding bill project, these projects keep the whole construction industry going.

Yet it’s not the industry, it’s the workers and their families that I’m concerned about. Rep. Barrett evidently doesn’t care about us, our jobs or our families.
