Lisa Bayley is a remarkable woman with a long history of serving our community with honesty and integrity. She cares deeply for her constituents and is a tireless advocate for those without a voice. She has proven to be fiscally responsible and a careful steward of our money. City Council voted on a proposed ordinance to increase electric and utility fees twice. Bayley was the only council member who voted against the ordinance the first time, and she voted against it the second time as well.
Pierce County Health Department will hold an immunization clinic 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23, at the Pierce County Office Building, 412 W. Kinne St.
I have served on city commissions for several years. During this time, it has been my pleasure to work with Lisa Bayley. Ms. Bayley has amazing insight into the management of Red Wing's city government. She approaches each issue with fairness, intelligence, and insight and is always looking for the most efficient and economical solution. Ms. Bayley would be a tremendous asset in our state House of Representatives, and I support her as such. Rev. Tom Calhoun Red Wing
Viewpoint I have a word of caution for Lake City voters. Passage of the referendum to abandon some of Washington Street would open a can of worms. In Lake City's Charter, our governing document, there is a metes-and-bounds description of lakefront area in which city-owned property is protected from privatization. The provision's purpose is to protect our lakeshore, the city's most priceless public asset, from being sold at the whim of a sitting council. I know this because I was on the Charter Commission when 80 percent of Lake City voters approved that provision.
