Freedom on the Fourth?


What fun we will have this year on the Fourth of July in Brainerd, with Brainerd Community Action kicking off the event by becoming political and endorsing John Ward as our marshal. I had personally asked Community Action two weeks ago to not be political, as there are many options besides endorsing a candidate. A simple fix could have been to have our Sen. Carrie Ruud be a dual marshal.
