Charging that City actions which “skewed factual information” and “suppressed opposition” were an “abuse,” on April 3 and April 10 attorneys for the Minnesota Voters Alliance filed post hearing and reply memorandums against the City of Lino Lakes for violations of the Fair Campaign Practices Act. The memorandums are the final legal steps in the matter, and now it’s up to the Office of Administrative Hearings to make its decision on this matter.

The case against Lino Lakes revolves around the city using public funds during the 2012 election to misinform the voters and promote a measure it created which would have repealed citizen protections from the City Charter.

The Minnesota Voters Alliance has taken action in support of Mike Trehus in his legal action against the City of Lino Lakes for alleged violations of the Fair Campaign Practices Act. The case against Lino Lakes is an important example to citizens, taxpayers, and voters everywhere in Minnesota of what a government can (but should not) do with public dollars. This case is also important because, as the first of its kind involving a municipality, important legal precedents will very likely be set.

In brief: The City of Lino Lakes developed and proposed an amendment to the city charter that would have significantly curtailed the rights and protections that property owners and taxpayers were given under the Charter.
