Just got back from the airport Post Office, mailing the Rebuttal Testimony in the Mesaba case and found some great news:

The City of Red Wing has been told very specifically that they have no authority to do background checks on people filing as candidates filing for municipal office. Not only that, the information they’ve collected on candidates is public data. That means it must be disclosed. That means we’ll find out what they’ve been up to!

DUH! There’s an echo in here… of course they have no authority. But this is good. Details tomorrow.

It hadn’t even occurred to me to make a Data Practices Act request… this puts a whole ‘nother spin on it.

Yes, a good and “interesting” day all around.
