Franken, Dayton To Attend Flood Prep Meetings

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Mark Dayton plan to visit Moorhead and Crookston to discuss flood preparations in both communities.

The Forum newspaper reports that Friday’s meetings will involve key federal, state and local officials in the Red River Valley, where a significant risk for major flooding is forecast in many areas.

The Crookston meeting begins at 12:30 p.m. in the Campus Ballroom of the University of Minnesota at Crookston.

The Moorhead meeting is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Both meetings are free and open to the public.

  • god help us

    The blind leading the blind they will call super obama and he will come in and suck up all the water and fly it away,on his way to the gulf he will scoop up all the zombies and drop them off in eutopia(Whashington) and cure them with obama care

  • Ralph E. Nyquist

    I find this comment to mean spirited, but more importantly it does nothing to edify the conversion and makes light of a very serious situation.

    I am a person whose house was involved in the 97 flood in Grand Forks. And I find this comment personally offensive, derogatory of the very groups who are trying to help (and who have helped in the past).

    Flooding is not a partisan issue as this comment seems to imply.

  • wasted tax money

    unless dayton and frankin are going there to help fill sand bags without the media…(ya rite…. that will never happen) than all they can do is look more stupid…maybe frankin can amuse them with and few clean jokes (if he has any)…perhaps they can put on a show (the daykin show) for the ones that have real jobs

  • everynight live

    what an idea…we”ll send gov.dayton and sen.frankin to every town in minnesota…they can charge people at the door to come and see the DAYKIN show NO SMOKING and NO REPUBLICANS allowed…by the time they put on nightly shows in every town we”ll have a balanced budget.and two polititions whos terms have expired with little damage done to real minnesotians
