Representative Glenn Gruenhagen joined by Seneca Food’s Andy Slinden
SAINT PAUL, MN – Representative Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, welcomed Andy Slinden, a plant manager at Seneca Foods, as his guest to Wednesday’s State of the State address where he participated in a jobs roundtable with local job creators from across the state.
House Republicans used their guest tickets to the annual address, traditionally reserved for friends and family members, to invite Minnesota job creators to participate in a roundtable immediately preceding the speech and to join them on the House floor.
“Last night gave legislators the opportunity to hear from Minnesota’s job creators about the best policies to foster job growth,” Gruenhagen said. “We need a business climate that encourages companies to expand and invest in our state, not pack up and head for Wisconsin or North Dakota. Governor Dayton’s proposal is a step in the wrong direction.”
Seneca Foods is a food manufacturer and has a plant in Glencoe, Minnesota, located in District 18B that employs approximately 125 employees.
