Last night, Secretary of State Jason Gant emailed me the applications submitted on behalf of Walmart requesting the city’s voter list. I had inquired about whether anyone had purchased the list for today’s story on how Walmart is reviewing the more than 6,300 petitions submitted by residents who are challenging the proposed south-side Walmart at 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue.
The only request made in the lasts two months was from a Barbara Stevens of Boyce Greenfield Pashby & Welk. Patrick Knecht is a lawyer at the firm, and Knecht is representing Walmart in its bid to build the new store. Note the request was made Tuesday.
