To the editor:
Rep. Mary Franson does not represent Greater Minnesota values and, by her own admission, will not have a strong voice for her constituents in House District 8B if she is re-elected.
While Rep. Franson has made embarrassing headlines nationally and statewide for comparing her constituents who receive food assistance to wild animals and baselessly accusing Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe of plotting against her re-election bid, her record in the Legislature shows she has not been an effective legislator for rural Minnesota.
Rep. Franson has admitted that members of her own party did not support her and distanced themselves from her.
Instead of spending time in St. Paul fighting for issues specific to her constituents, such as lowering property taxes for farms and small businesses in rural Minnesota, Rep. Franson spent her two years in the Legislature authoring bills that accomplished nothing.
In her two years in St. Paul, Rep. Franson authored 36 bills. None became law. Very few were even discussed or forwarded. Even her own party wasn’t interested in the agenda Rep. Franson was trying to push.
That is the definition of an ineffective legislator.
