Gov. Mark Dayton reported to a church coalition Sunday that he pledged to work with that social equity is still a priority.
The governor spoke to more than 600 civic and faith leaders from 100 congregations who make up the ISAIAH coalition. They gathered in the auditorium of Progressive Baptist Church in St. Paul.
According to the Star Tribune, Dayton said that economic concerns such as stagnant real income and unemployment are hurting the communities.
According to the Pioneer Press, Dayton mentioned his proposals to increase taxes for the wealthiest Minnesotans by saying that "while average incomes have dropped, the wealthiest 1 percent of citizens have been increasing their share to 18 percent of the country's assets."
The whole point of this rally was to celebrate the partnership between the Dayton administration and ISAIAH.
