Discussion: What does it mean to be a progressive patriot?
Three days from now, Minnesota will kick back, celebrating Independence Day. From a policy perspective, we’ve spent the last two years righting many policy wrongs. The economy is growing, school funding is up, MNsure enrollment surpassed expectations, and the Green Line LRT opened to 100,000-plus first weekend riders.
We have much to celebrate. We also have much yet to do.
Reversing Minnesota’s conservative policy turn makes us, we believe, progressive patriots.
What does progressive patriot mean to you? What is the patriot’s responsibility and obligation to protect communities?
This discsussion is open all day. In addition, retired Metropolitan State University Professor Tom O’Connell will join us from 8-9:30 am, as he reflects on these questions, poses more and listens to you.
