West Central Tribune: Walz, Johnson stick to common themes in Willmar forum

EXCERPT: “The views of Minnesota’s future provided by its major candidates for governor could hardly be more different. During a 90-minute forum Tuesday in Willmar, they stuck to some main themes. Democratic-Farmer-Labor candidate Tim Walz returned frequently to his plan to build coalitions and find solutions to problems that work for the state as a whole. Republican candidate Jeff Johnson spoke of changing the culture in state government to make government employees more accountable to the taxpayers who pay their salaries. The forum was broadcast live on WCCO Radio and held at MinnWest Technology Campus. In addition to the radio station, sponsors were Agrigrowth and the Minnesota Corn Growers, with support from Minnesota’s Credit Unions and AARP Minnesota. Moderators were WCCO’s Chad Hartman and Blois Olson.” FULLSTORY: http://bit.ly/2E9SmR3
