“Government can improve how it works, nearly 800 people heard at Gov. Mark Dayton’s job summit Tuesday, which can help businesses create jobs.”
At almost the exact same time, Speaker Kurt Zellers was talking to the Marshall Independent:
“Zellers said overhauling the permitting process and taking advantage of technology would boost Minnesota's bottom line and would help Minnesota better compete with bordering states.”
The message was the same a few days earlier in Crookston and Cambridge before that. And the message is clear: Government. Must. Change. For taxpayers and for businesses the scope and process of using government services must change.
That’s the purpose of Reform 2.0. We made a good start in 2011, but it’s clear from meeting with people around the state that there is much, much more that needs to be done. Starting today, we’re posting the idea posters from the Reform 2.0 meetings to share what we’ve heard and gather input. You can find them on our Facebook page. Share your thoughts on the ideas. If you see something you can build on or fit your own ideas into, leave a comment.
The reform discussion is taking place, don’t miss the chance to be a part of it.
