Thanks for printing my letter last week with the great headline: "Inver Grove Heights should capitalize on new opportunity to provide affordable workforce housing."
However, I was disappointed that in the editing process a word was changed that I believe altered an essential point.
To the editor:
I am not an expert on land use or development but for the past 10 years I have worked with people advocating for workforce housing around the metro area. Our goal has been to request that cities take responsibility for their fair share of housing for the workforce such as nurses, fire fighters, policeman, teachers, college grads joining the working world, etc.
I appreciate the article “Reforming K-12 Education: Replacing No Child Left Behind” from Rep. John Kline published in the Jan. 18 Southwest Review. To read about our representative’s agenda in the 114th Congress is refreshingly transparent from a politician.
On Nov. 4, citizens of Inver Grove Heights will have the opportunity to select two individuals to serve on the Inver Grove Heights City Council. Our city has been fortunate to have the wisdom and history of service provided by past and incumbent council members.
I am a 10th grader at Henry Sibley High School. It is important for people to know how important technology is in our schools. Can you imagine doing your job with an outdated computer and no internet connection? Well, I can’t do my work without technology either.
