The Minnesota News Media Institute and the League of Women Voters Minnesota Education Fund — in cooperation with the Minnesota Newspaper Association’s 144th annual convention — held a Public Policy Breakfast this morning at the Sheraton Bloomington.

Attending the forum were Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch (R), Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk (D), Speaker of the House Kurt Zellers (R) and House Minority Leader Paul Thissen (D). The discussion was moderated by Rollin Bergman, MNA Board Member and owner of Page1Publications, East Grand Forks. This event was billed as a unique opportunity for state leaders to interact with members of the Minnesota media community as well as the general public to discuss important issues that affect all Minnesotans.
