The Minnesota Surprise

FAIRtax Volunteers often appear where we least expect them.  This is the case with FAIRtax-er Harold Radke of Pine Island, Minnesota.  Harold found out a political activist was coming to speak at a local church and didn’t let the opportunity go to waste to promote The FAIRtax.

Harold quickly gathered together his literature and a screen display.  Pictured here is Harold’s setup at the entry to the event in Zumbro Community Church in Zumbro Falls, Minnesota.

Harold reports people going to the event streamed past the table, but on the way out, they started engaging.

Harold says he isn’t clear about when he first heard about The FAIRtax, but he recently remembers hearing Texas Senator Ted Cruz mention it.

Both Harold and his Son were pilots of business aircraft.  Harold recalls flying Mike Huckabee once.  Harold says the accountant for the business once had to redo the taxes, which was disruptive.

In addition to being a pilot, Harold interfaces perhaps mostly with the IRS because he is also a Farmer.  In this role Harold deals with a tangled web of tax issues.

Minnesota State FairTax Legislation Initiative
In addition to Harold, another surprise came out of Minnesota this week by way of our Alabama Team Leader, Chuck Bailey.  Through Chuck, we found out there is a state-level FAIRtax bill winding its way through the Minnesota House Of Representatives.  The bill is HF2861, and the sponsor is Rep. Steve Drazkowski Legislative District 21B.

We have an e-mail and a call into Rep. Drazkowski and will report back with any news.  Meanwhile, if you want to encourage Rep. Drazkowski, call his office 651-296-2273 or Email Him

Mr. Drazkowski’s Legislative Assistant is Luke Sprinkel, 651-296-9183.  If you learn anything from that office, please share it with me so I can share it with the rest of the Grassroots.  If you happen to live in, or close to, Mr. Drazkowski’s district, please make a special effort to contact him and say thank you.
Call For Pictures & WriteUps
We need more of you to send in pictures and news.  If you have anything to share, please EMAIL your material to me, text me 908-578-4975, Fax me 908-598-2888.

When others see your activity, they are inspired, and the process snowballs.  When the process snowballs, Representatives, Senators and, yes, even the President start to take notice and listen to Us.
