This morning, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton appeared on St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis’ weekly radio show on AM1240 WJON. Yesterday, following Dayton’s speech at the Legislative Conference for Minnesota Cities, Counties, School Boards, Townships, The UpTake spoke to Kleis about the importance of Local Government Aid that St. Cloud receives from the state. Kleis, a former legislator himself, also emphasized the importance of those in the State Capitol bringing governmental experience with them, as opposed to flooding St. Paul with private-sector values.
