The RedSquirrel Report Endorses Cam Winton

On Tuesday, the voters of Minneapolis will elect a new Mayor.

Your bushy-tailed pundit is endorsing renewable energy businessman and political newcomer Cam Winton.

I am voting for this outsider because he speaks like someone who demonstrates the market discipline of a businessman, not a bureaucrat. I think that's what he means when he refers to himself as 'a fresh set of eyes.'

The candidate has appeared on The Northern Alliance Radio Network with Mitch Berg and the Up And At 'Em Show with Jack Tomczak and Benjamin Kruse, and appears to be what I am looking for in a steward of the taxpayer's money. He will lead the fight against wasteful spending.

Candidates Betsy Hodges, Mark Andrew, Don Samuels, Jackie Cherryhomes are all former members of The Minneapolis City Council, the body that brought us big, shiny boondoggles instead of making sure that our city has enough cops. Cam Winton is a dark-horse outsider who describes himself as "fiscally conservative and socially inclusive".

By fiscally conservative, I take that as meaning he's against large, pricey boondoggles that his opponents have generally supported. Cam Winton believes in spending the taxpayer's money on basic services, like more police officers and filling the city's potholes in a prompt manner.

In 2004, The City of Minneapolis completed The Hiawatha light-rail line. It costed over $700,000,000 to build, and goes to The VA Administration Building, The Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, and The Mall of America.

We have city buses 7C, 7D, and 7E that used to do that, so we didn't need a train. Now, the money-wasters want to waste even more money on street cars. Cam Winton is leading the opposition against this wasteful spending. He also opposes the wasteful spending on Orchestra Hall, which now sits empty. To my way of thinking, this is welfare for the rich---and it is foolish.

Cam Winton isn't a fire-breathing conservative, but this bushy-tailed conservative believes that he is the best candidate for this office.

See you at the polls.
