The assault on local governments began under Governor Pawlenty and continued by Dave Hancock shows just how much the Republican Party caters to the wealthy Twin Cities suburbs at the expense of rural Minnesota:

Local Government Aid Cuts since 2002

Dollars (adjusted for inflation) % Decrease
Beltrami County Cities $-1,034,494 -32%
Clearwater County Cities $-297,019 -49%
Hubbard County Cities $-654,638 -158%
Lake-of-the-Woods County Cities $-114,436 -35%

Make no mistake. Income tax decreases for the wealthy in the Twin Cities are financed by property tax increases on local seniors and other property owners, including our locally owned businesses.
