Letter to the editor: We’ve known all along in this cityI read the last two editorials in the News-Chronicle and find it very refreshing and informative.

Thank you for dusting off the tourism report. It’s accurate, with the conclusion I gathered since becoming a resident. I retired and moved my family to Two Harbors in 2005 with great enthusiasm – looking forward to the new development by Sam Cave plus Tourism Resource Teams visit and recommendations. I saw growth, jobs, and an increase in the city’s tax base giving the city a face-lift with new sidewalks through town and alleys being paved.
To my dismay, all I heard were negative and inappropriate comments being made against Mr. Cave without knowing the facts. Once one person put poison in the water everyone drank it.
What happened to our freedom? Do you ever want this town to progress? Or, as they say, it’s just fine the way it is. In years to come, with that approach, Two Harbors will be known as a dying community. God gave you the lake, now it’s up to the city to do something with it.
On the other issue of the city administrator, I, too, have had contact with Lee Klein only to have a negative outcome. What part of open government does city hall not understand? To the city council members, after being sworn in to represent the residents of this community, what part of that commitment was lost after taking office?
Why does the city feel that they need to publish their own newsletter with our tax dollars? I for one would like to know what the enterprise funds are, and for what are they to be used?
Remember, city resident, your opinions matter, so don’t be afraid to express them. An open government is a working government.
Thank you, News-Chronicle, for opening our eyes and keeping us informed.
