The career of John Marty has spanned 33 years since January 1987. The retirement of Senator Cohen of MN Senate District 64, makes Senator Marty the Senior most Senator in the MN Senate.
Senator Marty has run for the Governor’s Office more than once 1994 & 2010 and keeps an open MN Campaign Finance Account open for Governor.
This could be the year to retire Career Politician John Marty.
The difference between Greg Copeland and John Marty is stark. John Marty lives in a relatively crime-free neighborhood in Saint Anthony, while Greg Copeland lives in Crime Statistics Grid 54 of St Paul, which has the most Violent Crime in St Paul. Greg’s neighborhood is diverse but has high poverty, while John Marty’s neighborhood is upper middle class and not as diverse as Mr Copeland’s neighborhood. Greg goes to City Meetings as well as School Board Meetings in St Paul, and John Marty rarely comes to the B side of Senate District 66 except to drive through it on the way to the Senate Legislative Office Building (SLOB).
Saying NO to the St Paul Organized Trash Ordinance
Greg Copeland ran in St Paul’s Ward 6 as the Original Vote No candidate. Other candidates for the open seat vacillated before deciding which way the wind was blowing.
John Marty wrote the language to allow cities to enact Organized Trash Ordinances.
The St Paul Trash Ordinance unfairly hits low income earners, zero-wasters, and those on fixed incomes. Businesses and multiple unit apartment buildings get to opt out of the ordinance. They solved a problem that didn’t exist, now without competition or a choice residents get sloppy service and higher costs for trash hauling.
Runaway Violent Crime
If you live in St Paul you know Crime, especially Violent Crime is a daily occurrence and it doesn’t need an external reason to exist. The George Floyd protests were an excuse for Antifa & other proxy groups to cause mayhem, and destruction of public and private property.
The complete desertion from their duties, the local Police, State Troopers, Mayors of both St Paul & Mpls, and Governor Walz failed Minnesota Citizens in letting criminals burn Mpls and St Paul.
Since 2012 Senator John Marty has turned blind and deaf when it comes to Violent Crime. After Ray Widstrand was beat up and left for dead in August 2013 there was a Crime Meeting to address it. Neither Rep John Lesch nor Senator John Marty was there to face the scorn and disgust of the residents of the Payne Phalen Neighborhood. John Marty failed to help St Paul residents and he continues to do so while collecting a State Salary.
Citizens of Senate District 66 Deserve Better
