Minnesota State Senator John Marty writes “To the Point!” for the Apple Pie Alliance. His self-description:
“I am conservative; frugal with money, personally and in government. I support conservation of natural resources and the environment. Conservative values — honesty, fairness, and respect are important to me.
“I work to promote responsibility in government, business, and families.
“I am progressive; forward-looking with a vision for a better future. By investing in the health, nutrition and education of young children, we prevent problems before they start — an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
