Your View: Karl Johnson good fit for 19A

Gary and Deb Gintner, St. Peter

— We are excited that Karl Johnson of Belgrade Township is running for the Minnesota House 19A seat in the special election.

With Ruth Johnson and Terry Morrow we have a record of electing outstanding people who are respected and do us proud in St. Paul. Now that the DFL is in the majority we have a chance to get some things done for our area and the state.

First we need to balance the budget without gimmicks and accounting tricks. A farmer and businessman like Karl Johnson is a perfect fit for the challenges we face.
