On Sept. 22-23, MinnPost Festival will bring can’t-miss conversations with national and local guests exploring a range of issues surrounding civic life in this moment.
Today, we’re spotlighting one of our featured panels sessions, A Conversation with Gov. Tim Walz. MinnPost state government reporter Peter Callaghan will lead this one-on-one conversation covering Walz’s views on the top issues facing Minnesota one year into his second term and his growing national profile.
Tim Walz is Minnesota’s 41st Governor. His career in public service includes serving our country in the military, serving students as a high-school teacher and football coach and serving Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. Congress.
This panel is on Saturday, Sept. 23, at noon CT and is one of the free sessions available to all passholders.
