Where is the surplus?
To the editor:
Last week Peggy Benson made several positive comments about Sen. Ted Daley. One was that Daley played a significant role in taking our state from a deficit to a significant surplus.
Benson pointed out that she is a CPA and thus has a much stronger background in financial matters than most of us.
I’m a retired high school math teacher who’d like to point out one significant detail. The State of Minnesota has borrowed close to $2.5 billion from the schools in our state in the last two legislative sessions. How can Benson think that we now have a surplus?
