Those that are speaking ill of Dede have not walked a day in her shoes over the past 3 months, you have no idea what she has been through, the lack of respect that was shown to her, the list goes on and on, so you have no right to say anything!! All Dede wanted to do was be a voice for the people of Winona, and was never given the opportunity to do so. The amount of money lost this year is just a drop in the bucket compared the 198,000 dollars the police dept. lost the city last year!!

The City of Winona needs to WAKE UP!!! Sad that folks can't work with others in order to unite a city that has been torn apart by slum lords, liquior stores and City Officials that are draining the city! It's nothing but a bunch of high school drama! Proud of you Dede...just remember you can't fix stupid!!!
