2010 Minnesota Gubernatorial Debate
The TwinWest Chamber of Commerce was proud to host a high profile gubernatorial debate in the race to succeed retiring Governor Tim Pawlenty. 500 business leaders attended this August 26 debate.
With so much at stake for the future of Minnesota, the 2010 governor’s race will be extremely important in electing the state’s next chief executive officer. Minnesota faces a projected $6 billion deficit for the 2011 – 2012 biennium. The business community has a strong vested interest in who will govern Minnesota and how the next governor will set forward a pro-business, pro-jobs, and economic growth-focused agenda.
