2010 MSRPO Annual MeetingPublished by admin on Thu, 08/19/2010 - 16:10
Stop Zebra Mussels from Coming to Your Lake!
MSRPO has a long tradition of hosting presentations by Minnesota's Governors at our annual meeting. This year we did invite all of the three major candidates to speak, but so far they have all had conflicts. Independent candidate for Lt, Governor, Jim Mulder will address MSRPO members. As a former administrator for the House Tax Committee, Jim Mulder.
Last week DFL Candidate Mark Dayton, whose family has long had a cabin on Lake Vermilion, took fifteen minutes to meet with MSRPO Executive Director Jeff Forester. The two had a very constructive exchange covering topics from Aquatic Invasive Species to Property Tax and the recent failure of the shoreline Rules process. Senator Dayton will send a letter to share at the annual meeting. At present we are still waiting to hear back from Rep. Tom Emmer regarding his ability to attend.
This is a particularly important election. It has become clear that the next Governor must solve Minnesota's ailing state and local fiscal system. We will need leadership and innovation and courage. So come out, hear what the candidates have to say, and meet the person who will be Minnesota's next Governor.
In addition to political issues, Jeff Forester will present a program about Minnesota's latest invader, the Zebra Mussel. Learn the damage this creature can cause, and share your ideas on legislative measures that will help keep it out of your lake.
