Paynesville Press - Oct. 27, 2010

Minnesota Senate District 18
Richard Hoff

Richard Hoff (I-Cosmos) has farmed in Meeker County for 45 years. (Incumbent Sen. Steve Dille (R-Dassel) is retiring from the legislature.)

Why are you interested in serving in the Legislature? The people in District 18 want me for my common sense and good judgment.

What, if any, state revenue increases could you support? None!

Describe an out-of-the-box solution to help the budget. Stop all bad spending.

If you were king (or queen), how would you balance the state budget? Stop all bad rules, fees, and spending.

With the Vikings lease expiring after 2011, what state role do you support in building a new Vikings stadium? None!

What can an individual legislator do to bring about bipartisan compromise in St. Paul? Very little, but fight for it!

What should the legislature do to minimize abortions? Keep their noise out of family affairs.

What would be your personal priorities if elected? Do what persons in my District 18 want. No sales tax on food, clothes, shoes, and have-to have items and cut taxe back to six percent.
