Taxpayer Tolerance Wearing Thin for T-Times

MN Governor Mark Dayton ltr Sets the Record Straight

Despite Lieutenant General Semonite’s unfounded representation to the contrary, Minnesota has not “come together” with the Army Corps of Engineers and the State of North Dakota to advance the proposed project.

Reinvention of the country club, meanwhile, is now estimated to cost the taxpayer $28 million (look for the final number to go higher). The Honorable Man would hang his head in shame. It would be more than he could bear.
