Seifert Talks “Common Sense” In Pine City
Minnesota Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Marty Seifert stopped in Pine City Monday to meet with voters and supporters at Wings North Restaurant. The former House Minority Leader spoke for over an hour about his plans regarding health care, welfare, and creating jobs.
He says the overall message of his campaign is bringing “common sense” to Minnesota.
Seifert won the straw poll at the Republicans convention in October. He says he believes his party is building momentum as the November election approaches.
Seifert told the crowd of about 30 people at Wings North that he is not afraid to push the envelop and take political stands. He talked about increasing the waiting period for welfare enrollment, eliminating government funding for Minnesota Public Radio, and not using government funds for a potential new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.
Seifert says he has done over 100 ‘Meet and Greets’ like the one in Pine City since he launched his push for governor. He says he learns a lot from hearing the wants and needs of local residents.
