Minnesota Responds: More Support for Governor Dayton’s State of the State Address

February 15, 2012

Saint Paul – Minnesotans are continuing to voice their support for Governor Dayton’s State of the State Address tonight.

TakeAction Executive Director Dan McGrath said, “We challenge legislators to pass the Governor’s jobs bills, including his bonding bill, so that Minnesotans can get back to work as soon as possible.”

Education Minnesota President Tom Dooher added,   “We welcome the opportunity to work with lawmakers to craft policies that address the real challenges facing our schools.  Our educators in the classroom can bring valuable insights to the solutions.”

Minnesota House Minority Leader Paul Thissen also weighed in on the speech.  “Governor Dayton delivered a clear and hopeful message tonight about our call to leave this state better than we found it,” Thissen said.  “I am confident we can answer this call if we focus on the bread and butter issues important to Minnesotans– creating jobs, strengthening our education system, and improving our economy for middle class Minnesotans.”
