The Hiawatha Golf Course Master Plan has been rejected, twice this year, by the Minneapolis Park Board. But with the coming elections, some candidates still want to cut Hiawatha in half and pre-flood the course, a dangerous proposition for our neighbors in a flood plain.
Steffanie Musich, our current embattled 5th District parks commissioner, made it her goal to close the course. When that didn’t work, she tried to cut the course in half. The Citizens Advisory Committee was formed, then disbanded when they didn’t do what the Park Board wanted them to do. When the public comment period was filled, a vast majority of respondents wanted to keep Hiawatha’s 18 hole course. Commissioner Musich is out of touch with the 5th District, and does not deserve your vote.
Charles Rodgers is running for the 5th District seat, and does deserve your vote. He will listen to you. He has the experience as a high-school coach to do what’s right for our great park system.
