STATEMENT FROM "VOTE NO" GROUP ON MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT DECISION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ST. PAUL, MN—Today the Minnesota Supreme Court issued its formal opinion in the court case brought by petitioners involved with the St. Paul Trash Lawsuit committee seeking to have a ballot question placed before voters in the general election on Nov. 5th, 2019.
While the Court had previously ruled in favor of the petitioners and ordered the city to put the measure on the ballot, today's Court decision merely affirms that the only way for St. Paul residents to lower their trash bills and fix a broken trash system is to vote no on November 5th.
"Only a 'no' vote will allow for a system that’s more affordable and works for all St. Paul residents," said Alisa Lein, a leader in the Vote No effort.
"A no vote gives us the chance to pass a new ordinance, prevent a property tax hike, and fix the numerous problems with the current system,” Lein added.
