With Valentine’s Day just a day away, Minnesotans should be asking themselves if Governor Tim Pawlenty is being faithful to the people he was elected to represent.
As Congress was working on passing an unprecedented economic recovery package, Governor Pawlenty said, "we are not lobbying" for Minnesota projects to get in the bill.
That means our own Governor didn’t try to get more jobs, more money for schools, more dollars in the pockets of working families in his own state when we’re facing the biggest economic downturn in decades.
He’s turned his back on the very citizens he is supposed to represent. And like a bored boyfriend, he’s already got his mind on the next thing. In this case, it’s his national ambitions.
We need to get our Governor back.
