Attest: Greg Hansen Karen Erickson Mayor City Clerk Vickerman question's Governor's commitment to rural Minnesota State Senator Jim Vickerman, Tracy, questiooed Governor Arne Carlson's commitment to the concerns of rural Minnesota in response to a report that shows only ten-percent of his major appointments come from outside of the seven-county metropolitan area. "I think that the governor's insensitivity to the concerns of rural Minnesota does not bode well for the future," said Vickerman. "When the University of Minnesota proposes closing the Waseca campus, and the governor is proposing to make major cuts in local government aid, it is quite clear that this administration's thrust is metro oriented. Vickerman cited a Sunday, February 3 edition of the SL Paul which shows that even members of the Governor's Independent-Republican party share his concern. "Former IR House Speaker David Jennings even believes that rural parts of Minnesota arefacing more serious economic problems than the Twin Cities," state Vickerman. "Unfortunately, Governor Carlson is using the political power of the suburbs and the Twin Cities to fuel his administration, and not looking at the real economic need of our Greater Minnesota communities."
