For many years we have had a county commissioner know by many probably the most negative to ever serve as commissioner. As a farm boy, I appreciate good farm-to-market roads. His ideal is a paved road from his farm house to the elevator. He has never cared about Minot (I’m using humor here). His plan for Minot would be on Main Street, from Central Avenue to Trinity, we would have hitching posts for horses for 5 blocks with a pump jack at each intersection and a tin cup fastened with barbed wire and a 2-holer in the alley. He opposed the vote to assist EPIC on breathing life in the Midwest Federal Building. Many of us who live in the city have waited years for someone to improve downtown Minot. I know what I am writing about. I personally have renovated over a dozen properties in Minot and all are restored in excellent condition and are on the tax rolls. He has not put two 2X4’s in the City of Minot. I purchased the old Woolworth building for taxes located on the corner of Main Street and Central Avenue (check it out) and it’s fully occupied today.

Wake up citizens of Minot. A population close to 50,000 and not one of our county commissioners lives in the city. I repeat, not one of our commissioners lives in the city limits. This is pathetic. I suggest that all of us in Minot join together to RECALL Commissioner FJeldahl. He has never been a supporter of Minot.
