Letter: Vote yes for clean water

As a long term lake shore resident of Detroit Lakes and a member of the Izaak Walton League of America, I am writing in support of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.  This constitutional amendment will help insure the long term integrity of our Minnesota and Becker County life style.  As exhibited by our residents recently who dug out Flowering Rush from the city beach, we need and want to protect our natural resources.  Unfortunately, the legislature has not done the job and we must pass this amendment.

A non vote is a no vote.  Vote yes. -- John R. Emery, Detroit Lakes
