I think she stepped in it on this one, though. It might be different were it a project really needed.
Anyone who has followed Northstar knows it’s a boondoggle Willie Green would be proud of.
Rep. Michele Bachmann wrote letters in support of these projects receiving stimulus funds. None was funded.
# Northstar Phase II
# St. Croix River bridge crossing
# I-94 westbound lane addition and eastbound reconstruction, between Albertville and Rogers
# Road improvements in Sartell
# University Drive bridge/corridor expansion, St. Cloud
# Minnesota 15 and 33rd Street South interchange right of way and construction, St. Cloud and Waite Park
# Albany Mutual Telephone to provide broadband access for the cities of Avon and Holdingford
NONE WERE FUNDED! Interesting...a Republican requests funds stimulus funds and NONE were funded by the democrats?
See there are a lot of interesting ways this can be played.
