For the TRUTH, vote LIES!

February 15th, 2006

In these days of ethically compromised politicians, this guy’s cornered the market on campaign slogans!

Tim Lies (pronounced “lease”) is in the Northfield News today, declaring for House District 25B. He and his wife, Kathy Farmer, used to come in to the Seward Cafe back when I was “giving good grill” there — and now he’s working with a friend from Lake City, Mike Eastin, over at Mt. Olivet’s Rolling Acres — it’s all too connected (turns out he went to school with P.J. Belevedere, brother of my friend Jo, too weird).

Lies to seek District 25B seat

BELLE PLAINE — Tim Lies, a current Belle Plaine city councilman, this week announced that he is running as a Democrat for the District 25B Minnesota House seat currently occupied of Rep. Ray Cox, R-Northfield.

“As a native Minnesotan, I’m proud of our state; proud of our legacy of good government, quality public services, great schools and a clean environment,” he said in a statement. “As I travel our district I hear again and again a concern that that legacy is in danger. We need a state government that will make smart public investments in our common good.”

As an elected city official, Lies said he has seen firsthand the negative effects of current state policies on local communities.

“Property tax and fee increases, crowded classrooms and program cuts, congested traffic and polluted air and water are diminishing our quality of life and endangering our children’s future,” he said. “We need a state government that will work with, not against our local communities.”

Lies also announced that he will be hosting two upcoming community forums — one at 10 a.m. Saturday in Duets Coffee Shop in Belle Plaine and another at 1 p.m. in Prairie Perks, on Highway 169.
