Kristi Gordon Endorses Mayor Wimmer for Reelection

I am very excited that Mayor Wimmer is running for re-election. I believe he is a strong advocate for the city of Isanti.

He works hard to bring businesses to our city that make sense for our city long term. He makes smart fiscal decisions to help keep taxes down. I believe …

Mr. Elliot’s latest Dangerous Idea

My opponent Scott Elliot has once again shown is lack of understanding of government finances and state laws we must follow plus sound fiscal policy. Mr. Elliot has slammed the City of Isanti for our debt payment schedule and not using cash on hand to pay down debt sooner. What he fails to understand is that we must maintain adequate reserves by law to make debt payments in case their is an interruption in city revenues as has happened in the past when the national economy …
