Professor of Environmental and Technological Studies Tony Akubue addressed Governor Mark Dayton and several Republican leaders gathered for a Special Education roundtable in St. Cloud. He told a standing room only crowd that “when you say this is off the table and this is off the table, you are telling me that you have lost your privilege for independent thinking. ”
Akubue says he has voted for Republican Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann in the past, but isn’t surprised she doesn’t support increased taxes on the wealthy because “she is a millionaire herself”.
