While waiting for the final results of a recount in the governor’s race, leading candidate DFLer Mark Dayton has set up a transition website, where he solicits suggestions and job applications.
Says the site:
This site was created to throw open the doors of our transition efforts and welcome you in. We welcome your suggestions, your ideas, and your talent as we chart the future of our great State together. If you are interested in service to our State through a position in an agency, on a board or a commission; or if you have an idea of how to create a better Minnesota, we welcome it through this website. Our Transition Team is hard at work every day to ensure we recruit Minnesota’s best and brightest, and harness the idea power that has made Minnesota a leader — and will continue to help us lead for years to come.
Dayton says it’s important to get many involved:
The late, great, Governor Rudy Perpich had a sign in his State Capitol office that read, ‘none of us is as smart as all of us.’ We’ve done it before and we can do it again. I have great faith in our state and our people, and am ready to bring our abundance of talent together to make a better Minnesota for all of us.
Republican Tom Emmer, trailing by nearly 8,800 votes in the race, has said he’s also preparing for the transition, should the vote totals change in an automatic recount set to start at the end of the month.
