Adam Ulbricht

ST. JOSEPH — Governor Mark Dayton defended his budget proposal at a public forum last (Wednesday) night. The governor said we have, “a rare opportunity to lead,” in front of a large crowd at the College of St. Benedict. Dayton covered a range of issues that include taxes, marriage equality and gun control. The governor called for an increase in taxes on wealthy Minnesotians to provide new revenue for the state. He said, “If people are doing better, they should want to pay more taxes.” Dayton says everyone needs to chip in and pay their fair share.
