    You want to roll back parts of the minimum wage increase law for tipped workers. Leave the minimum wage law as passed. Aftera all, the people voted for it as is.

  2. Senator Diamond,
    I am respectfully requesting to know what your reasons may have been for your Yes vote on Monday for the Ranked-choice Voting bill LD 1646, as amended. I hope you or your staff will take a moment to answer my question.
    We have most always trusted your judgment and returned you to office for that reason, but I am mystified and can think of no basis that would have resulted in a Yes vote on this bill.
    Thank you for your past service and I sincerely hope you can educate me as to why this issue deserves to be defeated, which is surely what will happen now.

    Thank you

  3. Your recent news letter reported expanded seniors can save up to $1200.00 in property taxes and Homestead Exemption to $25,000 which was to represent a $5,000 increase from previous year. My question is how do you see that as a reduction to me when my Homestead remained at $20,000 and my actual Tax bill went UP $74.93. I see that is not a reduction but as an increase. I must add that I am totally against rank choice voting,
