Minnesota Gov to Hold Water Summit, Good Idea for Wisconsin

Three Great Lakes States and Two Opposing Directions on Protecting Fresh Water

Wisconsin's Scott Walker and Michigan's Rick Snyder are the nation's two worst anti-clean water governors, fronting for polluters and far-right ideology. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) moves for polluters on the national front.

In Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (D) is holding the Governor's Water Summit on February 27, 2016, Saturday, from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
The summit will bring together water quality experts, farmers, legislators, regulators, the business community, members of the public, local leaders, and a wide variety of other stakeholders. It will focus public attention on the serious challenges facing Minnesota’s water supplies – in both rural and urban areas of the state – and continue statewide dialogue around steps that must be taken to address those challenges. All interested Minnesotans are encouraged to register and attend.

All stakeholders and other interested members of the public are also encouraged to take this online survey, launched in conjunction with the Governor’s Water Summit, to ensure that all Minnesotans’ voices are heard on this important, statewide issue. The information and input gathered from this survey will help inform the Administration and Legislature on Minnesota’s water quality challenges and possible solutions.

Would be a good idea for Wisconsinites to attend and gather some lessons learned and innovative solutions to pollution, as Scott Walker holds polluters' summits: They are called Republican fundraisers and meetings of the Wisconsin legislature.

  1. It is not just Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and Michigan’s Rick Snyder who are fronting for water polluters. All politicians are fronts for polluters, else how could they be elected? People thirst for underpriced water. The Clean Water Act itself poured federal funds down the throats of irresponsible local governments.
