    90 minute listening session? If you are not going to take any questions or discuss issues of the area, why bother? Just more proof of how out of touch our administration is!

      Listening to the people, what a terrible thing for a politician to do.

    Sounds like a DFL “feel good” trip paid with tax money to bash the GOP!
