In the governor’s company


Gov. Mark Dayton, second from right, visits with, left to right, Wright County Sheriff Joe Hagerty, St. Michael City Councilors Nadine Schoen and Chris Schumm, and St. Michael City Administrator Steve Bot. Bot said the governor was kind enough to grant the group 30 minutes of time to discuss the need for lane expansion at Interstate 94. The topic has been a hot one of late, with numerous area legislators and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann calling for action. “The governor understood the priorities for I-94,” Bot said.  “He promised to talk to the MNDOT commissioner and encouraged us to keep up the good work and spread the word.” Schumm arranged the meeting after he and Schoen were at the Capitoal for the League of Minnesota Legislative Day.
