Danner is a Good old Boy, Started out with a Dump truck and worked like a Dog to get his Class Act Company built to what it is today.

I have nothing but RESPECT for this Man and anyone else that has a drive to achieve what he did on his own with 'No Government hand outs', Just Sweat, Blood and a swamp.

Danner employes a lot of people, and a lot of these people have families to feed and Danner cares about everyone of them..

Look at the deniability quotes and how he was labeled a republican... I wonder who told the Pioneer Press about the raids, Mrs. Mayor?

I don't know much about Marly except that he started on his own and worked hard for what he has. I assume he doesn't have any friends in SSP city hall because his last name isn't Metzen and he probably doesn't donate to the dem establishment in town.

Marlon Danner has always been a hard worker, no doubt about that. What he has also been, is a crooked businessman, who has cut corners, not holding up his end of contracts. He has also been sued more times than you can shake a stick at, for various infractions. Trespassing, stealing topsoil from the property of others, and, for wrongful death. Oh yeah. A few years ago, Marlon Danner himself climbed into the cab of one of his machines, and in his rush, didn't look what he was doing, and backed it over an employee, crushing him to death. What will be interesting to see is how many public officials have accepted bribes from Marlon Danner. You see, Danner owns a home in Las Vegas. He loves to gamble, that darn Marley. And, it's long been suspected by many citizens that he has paid off inspectors and other city government officials in Las Vegas. That's an interstate crime, and thus a federal offense, which is why the FBI is involved. For years, Danner has been too big for anyone to take on. But it appears the Feds have finally caught on and taken action. Danner gambled, and this time, he lost. I am so looking forward to watching this unfold....business partners of Danner's, in many of his property development schemes and scams, will also go down with the ship. Just like Tom Petters and Denny Hecker, when the Feds sink that harpoon into The Great White Whale, lots and lots of smaller fish go down, too. And it's long overdue.

Ever heard of DLO Excavation out Of Cottage Grove? Same crap was pulled off. Don O., the owner of DLO would get sued, shut down, and start right back up. The two of them S_C_R_E_W_E_D more honest hard working people "legally" than you can count.

The state of Minnesota never did a thing about DLO, maybe the feds can do SOMETHING about DANNER!!!!!!! Matbe is the word.
