    ALRIGHT SERIOUSLY? now i must chime in on this issue as well…yes im on both sides of it. i dont really agree with the need to remodel the current grounds. i would rather see the money be put towards teachers and staff and educational programs to better further my kids education possibilities. but on the other hand what sold me in voting for it was the possibility of BETTERING THE LOCAL ECONOMY!!! because yes if we did do this it would bring in income from many different regional championship possibilities.because fergus falls would have the grounds to handle major competition like that. SERIOUSLY I THINK EVERY SINGLE COUNCIL MEMBER AND SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH A PERSON FROM THE “”LOWER CLASS”" because then changes would start happening and both the school board and the city and county would not be in the negative for long because a lower class person and make the tough choices that need to be made on can we afford this or can we do without it. would it benefit enuf in the long run to agree for the short term downfall?

    so many issues i think if i am still in fergus the next time around for an office opening i might just try to run and see about changing some of these stupid decisions that people are currently making…
