Ord 21-29 11/3/2021 11:04 PML. Daak For The Minnesota Prevention Alliance strongly and fiercely support ordinances of this kind. They protect our youth from the dangers of tobacco products. Thank you for considering this ordinance amendment to be on of the strongest in the State.
Ord 21-29 10/20/2021 12:19 AMWard 2 Against I believe this will do nothing but chase more smaller business out of st. Paul. People will just go else where. This will not help people quit smoking. I think crime, the pandemic and the fact people can not afford food right now. Please get your priorities straight! As a resident of st.paul for almost 65 years, I have to say that in the p*** few years I have considered moving out of the city because of the government costing me more money with every crazy new idea. It is much easier and cheaper to shop and live in surrounding areas. And safer! Please focus on whats important! Plus if it's not illegal to force businesses to charge a certain amount for a certain product...it should be. +2 -1
Ord 21-29 10/14/2021 7:29 PMJames Wilkinson For I strongly support the efforts to reduce tobacco in the City. These are good steps. As a member of the St Paul Human Rights and Equal Economic Opportunity Commission, I will report that the Commission p***ed a resolution of support for such a proposal some months. ago. +1
