I’m State Representative Steve Drazkowski. After 14 years helping farmers as a county extension agent, I know farm families are suffering after two years of all Democrat control in St. Paul.
Democrats targeted farmers at the State Capitol and forced them to pay more, creating new taxes on farm machinery repair, fuel and fertilizer storage, and health insurance. Democrats voted to tax farmers that pass the farm to the next generation. Democrats even took away farmers’ right to vote on some property tax increases; then they created a brand new property tax on each parcel!
In the last year, farm property taxes increased 17% in Dodge County, 16% in Steele County, and 32% in Goodhue County!
While Minnesota Democrats left farmers and rural families out in the cold, Republicans will lower your taxes, reinvigorate the ag economy, and bring hope and opportunity back to rural Minnesota. I ask for your vote —- so we can end the Democrats’ attack on Minnesota farmers!
