Rep. JoAnn Ward on Gov. Mark Dayton's State of the State Speech

The DFLer released a statement Wednesday shortly after the governor's address.

State Rep. JoAnn Ward, who represents a portion of Oakdale in House District 53A, released the following statement about Gov. Mark Dayton's 2013 State of the State address.

“Governor Dayton is taking a fresh approach to our state budget and priorities. Instead of the status quo of recent years that balances the budget on the backs of middle class families and small businesses, the governor is proposing to structurally balance the budget in a way that puts Minnesota on the path to economic prosperity. I look forward to working with Governor Dayton, Republicans and Democrats on ways to improve education, create jobs, invest in veterans and move our state forward. I encourage Woodbury, Maplewood, Oakdale and Landfall residents to contact me as we tackle these issues at the Capitol.”
