Questions to Ponder for the “Grand Gathering”.
1. Is the process to pick a city or county administrator flawed by vendor input and sponsorships to the League of Minnesota Cities or Association of Minnesota Counties?
2. Should the County and Blandin Foundation stop funding the IEDC? Are they aware of any influence pedaling to other sponsors? Has IEDC improved the economics of the area?
3. Should the County of Itasca put the choice of Elected Executive on the ballot as the form of County government?
4. With the highest unemployment in the state and the lowest average wage has the Blandin Foundation been a detriment to the area?
