YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. RAMSEY - TINKLENBERG PROPOSED AGAIN. WHY? WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY AWFUL IDEA. ATTACHING ANOTHER SANDBUR.


What numbskull came up with that idea?

Oberstar's no longer in Congress heading (or ranking minority member on) the Transportation Committee.

Why do something that @%$#^&$& stupid?

It appears Darren is on the way out, and now THIS????

Give me a break.

___________UPDATE___________
Still steaming. Hiring a lobbyist is not a sound idea, and while from time to time Tinklenberg has cast himself as something other than a lobbyist, there is this.

Then still online, this

Dayton will help pay lobbyist for I-94 project

The Dayton City Council has agreed to pay half of a $27,000 fee for a lobbyist seeking funds to build a new interchange on Interstate Hwy. 94 at Brockton Lane.

The project recently won $800,000 in federal money for final design and environmental studies.

Backers say the proposed interchange would boost development in the area, particularly the 638-acre Stone's Throw housing and commercial project on the south side of the site in Rogers. The Stone's Throw developer, Hassan Mainstreet, has hired the Tinklenberg Group lobbying firm for three months and asked Dayton to share the cost.

Then this


Then, federal lobbying registration, our fair city, this House search page yielded the registration screenshot info, below:


Square that with Oberstar losing the 2010 election, and this quote from the current agenda item,

Over the last several years, Ramsey has contracted with the Tinklenberg Group for federal assistance on rail and highway transportation projects in the following amounts:

2009: $37,047.03
2010: $68,947.78
2011: $23,547.30

Hasn't Ramsey had enough?
