What kind of mansion is being built?
To the editor:
This push for a new building to house 45 senators is absurd. To spend $77 to $90 million for a new building for senates offices is way out of line.
First of all, we only have 67 senators and they currently have offices at the Capitol, which seem to have been doing the job in the past. So, if those offices are being taken away, did anyone ask why
If I remember correctly, we built a Capitol building to house our government officials and last month when I drove through St. Paul, it was still there.
Here in Alexandria we are about to open a new high school that will accommodate over 1,000 students plus teachers and staff, and that is being built for $75 million.
What kind of mansion are you building? I read in the Star Tribune today that United Health Care is building a complex in Eden Prairie that will accommodate 6,700 people and will cost $250 million.
This entire plan needs to go back to the drawing board. If the senate thinks they have all this money to throw away, why not send some up here to help fix our roads?
