Jason Lewis, Jason Lewis, Jason Lewis.....
I'm so glad he's back. Jason was talking about the Hennepin County Stadium Boondoggle - and Hennepin County Taxpayers need Jason's help. Jason was unloading on Governor Pawlenty about this nonsense.
I hope Jason continues to flog this issue. Thanks to the Taxpayer's League for Letting Us Know Hearing Dates and Times.
2. You've had a couple of months to stew. Now get ready to vent.
Here's your last chance to tell the Hennepin County Commissioners what you think of their plot to steal $1.1 billion from you and give it to Carl Pohlad (while his sons' profit from the stadium and then ask you to pay more taxes).

I think Dump Mark Stenglein, Dump Mike Opat and Governor Pawlenty of Tax Increases stickers are in order.
