My Testimony to the MN legislature

Today I invited legislators to view our ALANA communities as assets. I presented the economic portfolio of the ALANA communities and encouraged them to leverage our massive public spending to grow the ALANA economic portfolio - reflected in such data as - $12 billion in consumer power; firms that as a group would be the 15th largest company in terms of revenue (over $5 billion) and 9th largest in terms of employment (over 40,000 with an annual payroll of over $1 billion). Minnesota is doing a lot of good things but to be doing great things we need to view our ALANA communities not as deficits but as assets. The testimony can be found on my site
