Thank you for attending sex offender program meetings

Dear Editor:

I want to say thanks to the hundreds of residents that attended last week’s meetings regarding the current Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) plans. As you know, I am very concerned with the current path DHS Commissioner Jesson and Governor Dayton have set for us, which is to transfer several offenders from a secure facility to a less secure facility in Cambridge.

Many of you brought important testimony to the meetings and raised very good questions, most of which still remain unanswered today. It appears most leaders in our community oppose the idea of moving these offenders to our own backyard, but our work to let state leaders know this must go on.

I will continue working in my capacity as state representative to seek answers to the many outstanding questions about MSOP and hope to hear from you about your questions or concerns as well.

Representative Brian Johnson
District 32A, Cambridge
