Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison stops in Mankato on listening tour

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s listening tour stopped at Minnesota State University in Mankato Friday.

Accompanied by Sen. Nick Frentz, Rep. Jack Considine and Rep. Jeff Brand, Ellison addressed multiple topics.

Among them were wage theft, drug prices, healthcare worker wages and keeping opportunity in rural Minnesota.

“I think Minnesota is too ‘metrocentric.’ We think about what’s happening in the metro too much, we need to think about the whole state. I tell ya’, I always learn a lot when I visit Mankato and Southern Minnesota. This is part of our whole mission of staying in touch with the folks, listening a lot; we’re going to share some ideas because people want to know what we’re up to, but mostly what we’re going to do is figure out what people’s priorities are,” said Attorney General Keith Ellison.

Ellison, along with District 22B Rep. Rod Hamilton, will be meeting in Worthington Saturday from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Worthington High School for a community listening session on drug prices.
