Property Rights Defender Passed Away

I just read at Saint Paul Issues and Forums that Brian Bates has passed away. Brian had great courage in defending property rights during our discussion of 14 E. Jessamine. I linked SPIF member Jeanne Weigum's annoucement of Brians passing in the title.

Brian had a good heart and always stood up for the causes he believed in. I worked with him on the billboard issue in Saint Paul and liked to consider him a friend.

I believed he most recently was representing a home owner on Cliff Street fighting the City's condemnation orders.

He was a good man and will be missed.

Brian was very concerned about the crazyness in inspections, it's a real loss.

I respect Brian a lot for his willingness to go against the grain. His loss will leave a much needed empty spot that most people will not want to step into.

Brian was admonished by his peers in the DFL party for taking a stand against civil rights violation.
