    Great stuff NP.
    Keep us informed of his response, if any.
    I will.
    To be honest, I do not expect any kind of response, as I am not a resident of his district (or his state for that matter).
    But I hope to encourage other PP.Oers, some of who are residents of his district, to email him as well.
    Good job Nodak.
    More people should take the time to engage their elected officials as the squeaky wheel gets the oil.
    If he has class, you'll receive a response.
    Please share what happens.

    I also took some time to write a email to Marty and cc'd the local reps that represent my parents.

    This isn't a game, this is politics.

    If you decide to email a senator, check this list first.
    Some will only respond if you use the form email they provide on the site.

    Dear Friend,

    Thank you for contacting me through the Minnesota Senate's electronic
    mail system.
    I regret to inform you that because of the volume of email
    I have received, I am only able to respond to messages that are sent
    electronically from the message form on the Senate Web site at:

    Damn bureaucratic red tape.


    Probably want you to follow the generic message format so they can plug your stuff into some sort of DB that they will use later to persucute you for life for going against thier notions.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I sent him my 10 reasons too (posted in the other thread).
    I just think there is a way, and that right now, they'r not even bothering to look for it.

    Exactly.
    I think Wilf has been taking the high road and that is waht he needs to do.
    I think that as long as he stays on that road, the people will be able to side with him and the Vikes.
    The legislators are looking like they are taking a hard line approach to the point of being ignorant and lacking forward thinking ability.

    Or they are listening to the taxpayers instead of Wilf's lobbyists. hmmm

    The average MN can't take it for granted that they watch it on TV every weekend while 64,000 people pay to go to the game and support the team.
    You can't sit back and let them give money to the Twins and the Gophers (yes you can for the gophers) without them making a contribution to the Vikes.


    Vikes + NFL + MN need to work together to get this done.
    You know they are going to do it later.
    Why not sit down now and figure it out.


    This is all debatable so why not sit down and do so.
    I respect the fact that the people don't really want to pay for it.

    Which taxpayers?
    They are only listening to some of the taxpayers - because obviously there is a decent contingent of people who do want a new stadium.

    Right now I do believe that the legislators are making themselves out to look like the bad guy by not even agreeing to look into the possibility of helping finance a new stadium.
    Five years ago, Red McCombs was the cheap bastard.
    Now Minnesota is.
