There are two city council seats up for election in Minnetrista and three candidates on the ballot competing for them. It appears current council member Mike Molitor will not be running again which is too bad. Although we didn’t always agree on everything he had a mind of his own and I respect that.
Returning trust and integrity to city hall is what this election is about but the following video is an example of what we’ve had in the past. The person in the video is one of the three candidates for city council, Damian Young, who is currently serving on Minnetrista’s Planning Commission.
The clips below were taken from a Minnetrista City Council Meeting during a hearing on the licensing and regulation of golf carts. Mr. Young was in support of regulating and licensing golf carts and was trying to convince the council that, not only was he in favor of the ordinance, but the Planning Commission was in favor of it as well. In spinning his tale he had forgotten I had attended the Planning Commission meeting he was referring to.
Minnetrista needs elected officials that don’t resort to deception to achieve their goals. We’ve seen enough of that in Minnetrista.

Anyone who actually knows Damian Young understands that he is a man of high integrity and character, not to mention, someone who cares deeply about this community. Slicing together video clips of a nominal issue in an attempt to discredit him, really paints a picture of who Shannon Bruce is. Don’t bring dirty politics into Minnetrista please. Shannon Bruce will not be receiving my vote for Mayor, and I will tell this story to others in the community.
A man of high integrity and character doesn’t use deceit to bolster his credibility. It just reveals he has little of either.
