Community Solutions Podcast

Nov 15, 2022  Well, here we are. The Republicans found a way to screw things up again. The Democrats are fully in charge in MN. So what does that mean? What kind of policies can we expect? What can we expect in Southwest Light Rail? Will it get finished? What does that mean for the Blue Line Extension? Minnesota has a large surplus of taxpayer money. What will happen to all that cash? We have a hunch on who might be waiting with their hand out. Will there be any education reform to strengthen graduation standards? Will the right to vote on referendums go away? How will out-state Minnesota fare compared to the Metro? Will drugs be legalized or decriminalized? Will sports betting be legalized? What kind of mandates are going to come rolling down? Will we become an abortion destination, with taxpayers footing the bill? How's crime going to look? There are so many questions, and we try to give you some answers as best as we see 'em. We are entering into a period where we need to be fully aware of what is going around us. We need to get better at knowing how to stand for what we believe and stop playing defense.

We will answer all of these questions and more on this episode of the Community Solutions Podcast!

We also discuss the success of Florida to clean up their voting system, and the continued failure of Arizona to clean up theirs.
