Carlson always just a phone call away

When I discovered a quirk in the charitable gambling law that prevented our Chamber of Commerce from contributing lawful purpose funds to our Longville/Remer VFW Post, Sen. John Carlson drafted a bill that changed the law and eliminated the obstacles. The result: the Chamber can now contribute directly to our VFW.

He is now working on two more issues that are important to our small tourism-based economy — MnDOT’s impending closure of Highway 84 to replace a bridge that provides the main access to Longville from the south; and assisting the Woodtick Wheelers ATV Club in developing ATV/OHV access to town via Highway 84.

Sen. Carlson is always just a phone call away if we need his advice or assistance. I know we have a friend in the state senate as long as John Carlson is there.
