Governor-elect Tim Walz meets community in Grand Portage

Governor-elect Tim Walz and Lt. Governor-elect Peggy Flanagan set out on a five-day listening tour of the state on November 29. The “One Minnesota” tour included a stop in Grand Portage on Monday, December 3, where he asked North Shore residents what they want his administration to know.

At the Grand Portage event, Walz thanked all who came out to talk to him and encouraged everyone to remain involved. He said he is seeking citizens to serve on his cabinet and shared the mission statements of different divisions such as the Department of Agriculture, Corrections, Education, Human Services and many others.
