Come July 1, Minnesota state government will likely be shut down. We’ve heard plenty from the legislators and the governor on this. Now we want to hear from the state employees caught in the middle of the epic impasse formerly known as the 2011 session.
We’ve created a simple and secure form below where you can share your experiences preparing for a shutdown. Unless you direct us otherwise, what you share will be confidential and will help to inform and guide our reporting.
If you’re reading this and you are not a state employee, I bet you know somebody who is — please send them a link! Thanks for your help; it’s essential to covering this story.
