Red Wing group members urge governor to veto golf course bills – Post Bulletin.

“The pending legislation could pave the way for a sale to a private individual, but critics say the process was flawed. Wendell Pittenger, who operates the golf course, has offered the city about $1.2 million for it. Fridell and Kent Laugen, a Red Wing attorney, have sent letters to Dayton seeking his veto.”

“The process isn’t always nice, neat and clean up at the Legislature,” said council member Mike Schultz, who’s on the golf course ad hoc committee. “I don’t think anyone intentionally tried to deceive anybody here.”

Ah, Mr. Schultz, it isn’t the process up at the Legislature that is the problem.

“Some people feel the situation gets at the bigger issue of whether staff members or the city council run the city. Red Wing Mayor Dennis Egan was asked that during a mayoral forum April 28. “I don’t know. I’ve only been here six weeks,” said Egan, who won a special election to replace Howe in February.”

    Maybe its time to replace Mike Schultz as council member.

    I’ve been following the sale of the golf course on this blog and this all sure begs the question; who is running this city? What a mess.

    It seems they all should go. Who is going to stand up for the citizens? Where is our voice?
