POST-PUBLIC MEETING UPDATES as of 02/11/2016:
FDR once said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." I believe this to be true. Each of us will have our own reactions to a convicted sex offender moving into our neighborhood, based on our own experiences and lens by which we see the world, and we may not all agree. What I hope is that we can all have as much knowledge of Mr. Dority and his situation as possible, so that our opinions are deeply informed and we can respond with prudence, wisdom, and respect.

Lots of news about this lately. Learn more at the public meeting on Dority's release from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 285 Dale St. N in St. Paul.
