PLYMOUTH, Minn. – Today Republican Minnesota Attorney General candidate Jim Schultz called on Attorney General Keith Ellison to denounce publicly Minneapolis Public Schools’ new teacher contract that provides for racial discrimination in connection with layoff decisions. The contract, which is currently facing legal challenge, is supported by Education Minnesota, who has endorsed Ellison.

“Racial discrimination of any kind in our schools is unlawful and immoral. Minnesota’s Attorney General must state this unequivocally and call for Minneapolis’s contract to be modified immediately.

“Keith Ellison is endorsed and supported by Education Minnesota – the teachers union that supports this disturbing discrimination. I, on the other hand, stand with parents, the many sensible teachers out there, and others who are tired of failing schools that are more focused on ‘woke’ policies than teaching our kids. We can embrace having diverse viewpoints in our schools without engaging in discrimination that is unconstitutional and morally repugnant.

“The question Minnesotans need to ask – does Keith stand with parents and the U.S. Constitution, or with the teachers union executives who support this discriminatory policy?”

Elections Assistants (Temp)

Salary $15.00 Hourly

Location Shakopee, MN

Job Type Full Time Temporary

Division Community Services Division

Job Number 2022-00097

Closing Continuous


Job Summary

We are now turning our focus to the general election and our need for temporary staff to assist us with the many, many tasks that are involved in running an election – who knew that it wasn’t just showing up to vote?

Are you someone that is looking for a temporary position and is great with detail? We are looking for people to assist us with Elections this fall.

We are hiring for two different types of positions:

Election judges for absentee ballot board:

This will have an intermittent, rotating schedule. Ballot boards start the week of September 26th and, per statute, have to meet every 5th day, then every 3rd day, then we expand to every day as we get closer to election day. We may schedule more often depending on need, but this would be the minimum. Length of shift would depend on the amount of ballots we have to go through ballot board – it could be an hour, it could be 5 hours and right before the election it could be all day. Flexibility will be the key to success.

Ballot opening starts 1 week prior to the election so that would run November 1st – 8th .

These functions will be done in a conference room that is available for viewing by the public. Our goal is to improve transparency and attempt to remove some of the mystery around elections.

Party balance is required for election judges per MS 204B.19, Subd. 5

Staff for ballot drop sites:

Assistance is needed 9/26-11/7. Hours would be 8-4:30 Monday through Friday with the exception of Saturday November 5th (hours would be 10-3) and Monday November 7th (8-5).

Locations would be various city halls or libraries throughout Scott County.

The work would be clerical in nature (accepting ballots from voters, etc.) It will be in an office setting with high interaction with the public. This work is not able to be done from home.

Minimum Qualifications

Must be available the days and hours listed for the role applying for. Attention to detail is essential. If applying for an absentee ballot board election judge position must be 18 years of age and must be willing to disclose party affiliation.

Selection Process

Selection for this position will be based on a minimum qualifications screening and rating of training and experience. Top candidates will be forwarded to the hiring manager or supervisor for consideration for interview and/or additional assessments. Final selection will include a background check and approval by the County Board.

⚖️ Here is Ronald Reagan’s complete 5:52 minute radio address 🇺🇸 ⚖️ 🦅

Open and free elections were the hallmark of American democracy after its founding almost 250 years ago. Sadly, the hallmark label seems tarnished as we’ve transformed election day which once was a day of celebration, into an almost endless election season. Folks from both sides of the political aisle publicly attack each other’s credibility, without cause or reason, and attack the institutions of democracy if they don’t get their way. This degradation that probably started in Washington DC, has now crept into local elections. For the relatively few dollars it cost to submit an election letter to local papers, one can with impunity, publicly attack the credibility of a fellow citizen and/or their supporters.

One such letter in last Saturday’s paper began “From my understanding, the endorsement of Natalie Barnes for senator was underhanded”. The author also uses the word “shenanigans”, but offers no information to support the allegation. As a delegate in attendance at the Scott County GOP convention that overwhelmingly endorsed Ms. Barnes for senator over Eric Pratt, I observed absolutely nothing that would justify the accusation made by the letter’s author.

I was equally disappointed to read Prior Lake Mayor Briggs’s letter in the American wherein he also appears intent on undermining Barnes endorsement, by discrediting the convention that chose her over Pratt. Briggs’s letter is full of inuendo questioning the convention endorsing process and claiming that delegates “weren’t notified of the convention”, but doesn’t offer any facts or specifics to support his claims. Since I’m not aware that Briggs was in attendance at the convention, I can only speculate on where he got his information.

If Briggs is suggesting that Pratt lost the endorsement because delegates who would have supported him weren’t notified and consequently didn’t show up— well that’s a stretch. Are we to believe that the volunteers who were assisting in planning the convention, selectively decided what delegates to notify and what delegates not to notify, or equally unbelievable, that elected delegates didn’t know when or where the convention would occur? It’s extremely disappointing, that a sitting mayor would publicly discredit the open and public process by which a fellow citizen gets endorsed for public office.

Making matters worse, I have in-hand, copies of circulated emails encouraging democrats to vote as republicans in the primary using the republican ballot instead of the democrat one, and to vote for Pratt in order to deny the GOP endorsed candidate from being on the November ballot. While these “shenanigans” aren’t illegal, to suggest that anything in politics is fair even if it’s unfair, is to undermine one of the bedrock principles of democracy.    

Americans are fed up with the nastiness of election politics and I have little doubt these bull dog type tactics are driving many qualified individuals from pursuing public office. Why should someone offer themselves for public service, if the result is going to be public attacks on their credibility, without cause? Isn’t it time to return mutual respect and fairness to the election process, starting here at the local level?

I did submit this letter with a couple minor changes to the editor of the Prior Lake American and the Shakopee Valley News, with authorization to charge my credit card for the appropriate fee for election letters. It was rejected as unacceptable.

Reliable law enforcement sources in San Antonio and Houston, Texas have informed CleverJourneys of an upsurge in “Bottle on the Tire” crimes.

Car jackers, robbers and kidnappers in many states use this method to target victims in parking lots, streets and parks.

They place an empty plastic bottle between the tire and body on the right side of the car.

They wait until the intended victim begins backing up or moving forward in their car.

As the driver backs up or moves forward, he/she starts wheeling the car and hears a strange noise. It’s the bottle bursting/cracking sound. 

The bottle is not in view since it is on the passenger side and can’t be seen from that angle.

In bewilderment, the driver steps out of the car to inspect the problem and is immediately vulnerable.

At this point, the entire car is unlocked, the driver door is wide open, engine is in running mode and the driver is out of the vehicle.

The criminal has multiple options

Steal valuables from the car,

Drive away with the car  

Hold you at gun point to rob, rape or shoot you.

Please share with others so that more people are aware of this dangerous trick. Even if one person is helped from not getting fooled or harmed, it’s worth it.
