Part 1: Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development must change grant procedures in 2017

The requirements by DEED for businesses are outrageous, unreachable and don’t facilitate any outcomes based on local reports that say unemployment in certain zip codes are in double digits for many Minnesotans.

Minneapolis Safe: Mayor adds nothing to economic uplift

Mayor Hodges cannot consult with “high-brows” and expect the work to be done for the “little people.” This is especially tough in the communities of color where one would think Hodges would make a difference, but has stuck to the Obama Clinical Citation (OCC) of, “I’m everyone’s, whatever.” In and case, Hodges will be remembered as nothing more than a placeholder mayor for a political party and how sad is that?
