The Pioneer Press
published a Sainted and Tainted
list on 04/23/2010 in their Opinion page [downloaded on 4/27/2010 from here.]
(Note: Article has since been archived by the Pioneer Press.)
An excerpt of the list is reproduced below:
Ruben Rosario, Rep. Jim Carlson, Rep. Sandy Masin, Eagan Chief of Police Jim McDonald and Rep. Mike Obermueller for not only taking their time, but truly participating with local residents in a conversation about the local aftermath of the immigration fallout.
We, in Eagan, truly appreciate their willingness to talk about the complicated and uncomfortable topic of immigration reform.
Gracias for the recognition that, although our federal policy makers will have great debate and final decision-making, "all politics is local." We look forward to further discussion.
