Banner Garners Complaint

The United Way of Hastings has been caught in the crossfire of opposing political ideologies of the 2022 campaign. According to published reports, a United Way of Hastings banner sponsored by MN House candidate Shane Hudella was removed by his campaign after the banner was singled out by an anonymous person who lodged a complaint against United Way of Hastings, saying the banner had the appearance that UWH was taking sides in the race.

This is the first time a complaint has been received.
