Today Greater Mankato Growth sent a letter to Governor Walz respectfully requesting that he allow all businesses the opportunity to reopen in a way that is safe, sustainable, and equitable with their peers. You can read the letter here.
Greater Mankato Growth is also looking for members to film a video testimonial to the Governor explaining how your business can open safely. Please contact Patrick Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
Yesterday Greater Mankato Growth partnered with 75 chambers of commerce from across the state to send a letter to Governor Walz urging him to consider a more rapid and equitable approach to safely open businesses of all sizes. In addition, our community’s own Marissa Brostrom, Owner of Graif Clothing, appeared in a video of small business owner testimonials.
To follow up on the letter, this week Greater Mankato Growth leadership is personally speaking with the Governor and Commissioner Steve Grove of the Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development.
Greater Mankato Growth continues to advocate strongly on behalf of our members both publicly and behind the scenes.
