Tell Dayton what you really think: Gov. launches feedback booths at State Fair


But be nice about it, fer cryin' out loud.

Gov. Mark Dayton, according to this post on The Office of the Governor Blog, is asking Minnesotans for their ideas to make state government better, faster, and simpler.

At more than a dozen state agency booths across the State Fair, according to the governor's office, fair-goers will be able to find more information about Dayton’s "Unsession" Agenda, and have an opportunity to provide their suggestions on, you know, how to do stuff.

The governor is asking specifically for ideas for the upcoming 2014 Legislative Session, according to KARE 11.

Dayton, by the way, has six planned visits to the Fair this year, says Minnesota Public Radio, but he says he's not in campaign mode.

So, this "Unsession" thing "will focus on eliminating unnecessary or redundant laws, rules, and regulations, and getting rid of anything else that makes state government nearly impossible for people to understand," says the guv blog.

Dayton also sent a personal email to the state's more than 30,000 state employees this week, according to KARE and the governor's office, asking for their reform ideas and suggestions. Already, nearly 1,200 state employees have registered to participate, and more than 300 suggestions have been collected from state employees in just the first four days.
