Showing up & tackling the tough ones…

Published August 2nd, 2018

I believe for Republicans to win in Minnesota in 2018 we have to tackle the tough issues facing this state head-on and we have to work HARD by showing up anytime/anywhere to make our case to Minnesotans.

I’m proud that Donna Bergstrom and I have been running that type of race for many months now.  We’ve been EVERYWHERE and have been unafraid to lay out a bold vision. We’ve taken some arrows, but have also given voice to our principles and won over Republicans and Independents (and even a few Democrats) all over this state.

Along the way I’ve been out front on many issues, including:

  • Refugee resettlement (see HERE)
  • Opposing big corporate subsidies (see HERE)
  • Pledging to not sign any new gun control as governor (see HERE)
  • The long-simmering issue of Lake Mille Lacs (with a BIG Town Hall just last week) (see HERE)
  • Releasing my detailed ActionPlan/MN for the first 50 days of my administration (see HERE)

Now more than ever, people want their elected leaders to stand up and tell them what they think (and why). They are sick of the old political games, the dodging, the talking points and answering the question you pretended to hear instead of the one asked.

The first step is showing up and the second step is being genuine and honest on the issues.  ~ Jeff Johnson

Jeff Johnson and Donna Bergstrom are the Minnesota GOP Endorsed Candidates for Governor.  This will be a close primary, and we need all Republicans, Independent Conservatives, and Trump Democrats to support our endorsed candidate and vote on August 14th in the Republican Primary. Let’s prove to the elite establishment we want a governor who will work hard for Minnesota, who will work side by side with Minnesotans, and who genuinely wants to #OverthrowTheStatusQuo.

Help the Oldest Dining Hall at the MN State Fair: Hamline Methodist Church

One of the most prominent Christian Churches in House District 66B is Hamline United Methodist Church, located at 1514 Englewood, in Ward 4 Precinct 13.  They were the original anchor point in Saint Paul, MN for Hamline University, as the University is affiliated with the Methodist Church.

For 120 consecutive years the Hamline United Methodist Church has operated the Hamline Methodist Dining Hall at the Minnesota State Fair.  This year marks their 121st year of operation, however they need to pay for some equipment so they can continue into the future providing a family style alcohol-free dining experience.

Here are pictures and their explanation of their needs from the Hamline Methodist Dining Hall Gofundme account:

Did you know that this year Hamline Church Dining Hall is one of only 2 church dining halls still operating at the Minnesota State Fair?  Staffed by hundreds of volunteers each year, 100% of the net profits are donated to charities.  Because we’re a church run operation, we do not sell alcohol, thus capping our Dining Hall’s volume.

Last year’s Minnesota State Fair was our busiest yet, and caused several key components to fail as we started up this year.  Both our commercial dishwasher and ranges (see below) need replacement.

We had no choice but to replace the dishwasher in time for the start of this year’s [Minnesota State Fair]
.  Our ranges no longer work, but we can still use the cooktops this year.  Not to worry; we are fully ready for the Fair!  However, all of this equipment is is very expensive and critical to the Dining Hall’s future operation.  We are hoping to raise enough to money to cover the replacement costs for our commercial kitchen and to insure Hamline Church can continue to run the Dining Hall at the Minnesota State Fair for years to come.

Thank you for your consideration and help and please be sure to visit our Dining Hall and beautiful church next to Hamline University; located at 1514 Englewood Ave in Saint Paul.

Dear Reader:

Before I got actively involved in politics in this area I used to attend Hamline United Methodist Church as I lived within walking distance to this church.  Every year I used to volunteer for 2-3 shifts at the Hamline Dining Hall washing the dishes or working on the dry end of the washing unit. I met Kent & Diane Krueger and his brother Mark who made the Dining Hall run efficiently. Little did I know Kent,  aka William Kent Krueger, was the well known author of the Cork O’Connor mystery series.

I recommend the Hamloaf, Pot Roast, and the Strawberry Shortcake if you decide to dine at the Dining Hall.  As a volunteer I would get a free meal, a ticket into the State Fair and a bottomless beverage while I worked my shift

As one who had used the Dishwasher, it is key to using and reusing real plates thus eliminating a mountain of throw away plates, utensils, and cups.  Not only is it best for the environment it gives the Dining Hall a homestyle feel to a meal at the State Fair, which is becoming increasingly uncommon at a very commercial, fried something-on-a-stick annual event.

As the House District 66B Republicans Chair I’ve wanted our political unit to be civicly minded, police & fire department friendly. We want to be that Good Neighbor that helps out when our neighbors are in need of help.  Our organization is not flush with funds but we can get the word out about Hamline United Methodist Church’s need.  Please give what you can for this worthy cause.  Also stop by for a family friendly meal, or a cone of Izzy’s Ice Cream
