Letter: Background checks for all?
To the editor:
Many of us read the front page of Sunday’s, Oct. 25, Detroit Lakes Tribune.
The headline read “County Board candidate was fined for illegal dumping, burning”
In this article a background check was done on all five Becker County Board Candidates, this is fine.
But what many of us would like to know is this:
Did the individual that called the DL Tribune to do a background check on the people running for county commission ask the DL Tribune to do a background check on the people running for city council or the school board?
Editor's note: Backgrounds checks were only run on the county commission candidates after receiving credible tips on the background of one of the candidates.
