Your Senator Metzen twice voted (SF238) on March 28th, 2007 to stop you from having a smoke in your VFW in South St Paul!

Senator Metzen is way out of line on this issue as it relates to your VFW.

Veterans put their very life on the line for our liberty; at the least we can do is allow them the freedom to have a smoke with their beer.

I'm sure Senator Metzen would allow a lobbyist to smoke when they booze it up in his state senate office.

Call him, 651.296.4370 and ask him why you can't lite em up in your private club.

I remember Jim talking last campaign season about a "friend" that had recently spent about $100,000.00 installing a ventilation system in his bar and restaurant. He also said that it would be a shame for his "friend" to have spent all this money and then have the senate ban smoking state wide. He said that he felt some sort of compromise was in order.

The big thing I learned about Senator Metzen last fall was that he never takes a controversial stand on anything. Go online and do a search of "Metzen voting record" You will quickly see that he sits on the fence and goes which ever way the wind blows. Take for instance the concealed carry bill. His only reason for voting "yes" was because he new it was going to pass. That is how a career politician keeps his job.
