MNA Statement on Mark Dayton and Tom Emmer

8 Dec

As Mark Dayton’s path is cleared to be Minnesota’s next governor, the Minnesota Nurses Association looks forward to working with his administration in the next four years.  MNA’s members eagerly support Governor-Elect Dayton as he faces a difficult burden of solving the state’s budget deficit while maintaining a safety net for Minnesota’s most vulnerable population.  MNA President, Linda Hamilton, RN stated, “As health care providers, one of MNA’s highest priorities is making sure that Minnesota accepts the federal Medical Assistance expansion and the $1.4 billion that comes with it.”

MNA applauds the professional manner in which Representative Tom Emmer conducted himself during the gubernatorial recount and in today’s concession speech.  Local and state election officials carried out the recount in a thorough, accurate and timely manner, once again demonstrating that Minnesota is a model for fair elections.
