Ron Paul Minnesota Team Names New ‘Small Businesses for Ron Paul’ Nationwide Coalition MembersSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Mon, 02/06/2012 - 17:51
MINNETONKA, Minnesota– The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced today new members of its active “Small Businesses for Ron Paul” nationwide coalition. Today’s additions hail from Washington, Red Lake, and Hennepin counties, all Minnesota, and pledge to spread the word about Dr. Paul among their respective communities.
Tom Dippel, a resident of Cottage Grove, has operated his business for over two years. Dippel’s business, Minnesota Dental Lab, has not been immune to the current economy. He states, “Business growth has been slow because much of our business is cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry. Both have a more significant out of pocket expense, and since the economy is bad, people have less disposable income to put towards these things.”
Mr. Dippel says he supports Dr. Paul because Paul backs “less regulations and excellent economics that will restore competitiveness and growth to our country.”
He adds, “Lastly, and possibly most importantly, I trust him to do what he says he will do.”
Jess Determan operates a second generation family business based in Brooks of Red Lake County. Field Drainage, Inc. has been operated for over 31 years. In regard to the current state of the economy, Determan states “We actually have a hard time finding help. Unemployment benefits are one of our biggest competitions for employees. I have actually heard prospective employees say ‘I can make just about as much money by not working.’”
Mr. Determan was direct in his support of Dr. Paul, saying “As our debt continues to grow, I know that productive Americans are going to have to pay that debt down. Ron Paul is the only candidate in either party that will stop the out-of-control spending so that we can start paying down the debt responsibly. We cannot afford anybody else. We’re broke.”
