Apparently some residents of Ottertail County would prefer DFLers not come up there

I'm sure we can all find somewhere else to spend our money.

Otter Tail County getting pushback on Governorís Fishing Opener:

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. ó Deputy Otter Tail County Administrator Nick Leonard said heís fielded several phone calls from residents asking why Otter Tail County is hosting the 2021 Governorís Fishing Opener May 13-15.

In the 2018 gubernatorial election, Otter Tail County went solidly for the Republican candidate, and Gov. Tim Walz is a Democrat. Walz has been criticized in parts of the county for his pandemic-related mandates.

Leonard told Otter Tail County commissioners on Tuesday, April 27, that the annual fishing opener is an economic event, not a political one. The Otter Tail Lakes Country Association, which represents more than 200 local businesses, applied to have the event here and will provide great exposure for the county, he said. It was supposed to take place in Otter Tail County in 2020 but was canceled because of the pandemic.

The association board discussed the event, he said, and decided that turning it down would be inappropriate given the hundreds of thousands of dollars it would provide to hard-hit hotels and restaurants, as well as more than $1 million in media exposure.

4. I didnt get the vibe in Ely....

or Brainerd , Thief River Falls or Duluth and points north. Must be the stupid gas drifting over from NODAK AND SODAK. What I didnt say is that we had to leave a restaurant because locals were being seated before us. We waited for a half hour before deciding to leave.
