Statement on Governor Dayton’s State of the State Address

Wednesday, February 15, 2012
(ST PAUL) — Tonight Governor Dayton delivered his State of the State address, outlining his proposals to put Minnesotans back to work, reform government, and improve Minnesota’s workforce. State Representative Michael Nelson (DFL – Brooklyn Park) released the following statement: “I applaud Governor Dayton’s leadership and his forward-thinking vision for the future of our state. Our state’s economic future is improving, but remains uncertain. The path toward a lasting economic recovery will require us to focus on jobs and rebuilding a strong middle class. It’s time to set aside distracting constitutional amendments and focus on what matters to Minnesotans: creating jobs, strengthening our economy and improving our education system. Minnesotans have always left our state stronger for the generation that follows us. It’s time for us to get to work to do the same. “I support the governor’s forward-thinking vision for Minnesota, and will work with him and legislators to make it a reality."
