Know what your legislator stands for

Know what your

legislator stands for

In the Feb. 28 Brainerd Dispatch’s article “Push for gay marriage under way at Capitol,” I was appalled to see in large print 10A Rep. John Ward  say he is “undecided ... on this hot-button issue.”

John has been an activist and advocate for gay marriage at our Capitol, but do not take my word for it, take his. Go to Or just type “John Ward on Marriage” in your search bar on your computer and watch the first Utube video that pops up.

Be sure to watch to the end where he is yelling very passionately how we must allow “these people to marry.” John I wish you were as proud of what you believe here at home as you are at the Capitol.

Be informed on what your representative stands for or votes for, as it will affect or infect your children’s grandchildren.
