Gov Walz, State Rep Fischbach, Sen Westrom & Rep Backer Visit Clinton Minnesota
by Vicki Oakes
Thank you to Governor Tim Walz and Representative Jeff Backer for coming to Clinton on Tuesday, August 3rd, to review the fire damage and talk with local businesses. Unfortunately, we were not aware of the visit until it was happening so we have only a few pictures of the visit by MNbump Blogger Janine Teske.
Thank you to Senator Torrey Westrom, Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach, and Representative Jeff Backer for coming to Clinton on Thursday, November 5th. They made two stops while here on the MNbump – the first was to review the Wheaton-Dumont Elevator’s fire damage and talk with those involved/affected (see video below for the detailed discussion at the fire site) They also stopped at the new Water’s Edge Assisted Living. Due to COVID concerns, they limited the number of people attending this stop (see the second video below).
Normally Janine Torgerson Teske is covering the northern MNbump; however, it was difficult for her to welcome them to Water’s Edge where she is working & video the event – so she called in for help!
