So sad to see Fountain Industries leaving

Found a newspaper article where Dan Dorman ( our Economic Development guy a few years ago says higher unemployment is no sign of concern) see below

Albert Lea sees bump in unemployment rate
Published 9:41am Thursday, July 28, 2011

According to new numbers released Tuesday by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, Albert Lea’s unemployment rate increased from 7.1 percent in May to 8.1 percent in June.
But Dan Dorman, executive director with the Albert Lea Economic Development Agency, said he doesn’t see this as a sign for concern; in fact, it could be just the opposite.

WOW
Is the  Dorman Doctrine is still being followed?


Say it ain't so

Shalopee has been attracting a lot of businesses big and small over the last ten or so years. Amazon, Brewers Group, Cyber Power and a parade of others.

Shows what a city can do when they make themselves into an attractive destination.

does not seem like the greatest track record to deserve that.

Add to that the city garage redo and cost associated with that.  All those lost jobs will not pay for the garage project, or other projects.

Was not too keen on some of the praises by council/mayor.  considering the history.

Especially since this city manager was censured by the council for his behavior, only to have the very same Rasmussen remove it from his file a couple of months later.
