Montevideo American-News: U.S. Senator Tina Smith visits Chippewa County for ‘Rural Economy Tour’

EXCERPT: “In the largest city in Chippewa County, last week, Oct. 10, U.S. Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn) visited Montevideo and was taken on a ‘Rural Economy Tour.’ During the driving tour, Smith was escorted by Montevideo City Council President Nathan Schmidt, City Administrator Robert Wolfington and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Luther Heller, who guided her through the city and stopped at three different businesses, The Dryer Doctors, Montevideo Family Dentistry and American Surplus. The goal of the visit, according to Smith, was to see what is or isn’t working in rural communities like Montevideo and how she can help. ‘I have had a chance to visit so many small towns in Minnesota and I am always impressed by the creativity and energy I find in these cities. So I have a special goal in coming to Montevideo to really understand what is working in this community and how I, as a senator, can support the good things that are happening here,’ she said.” FULL STORY:
