Flaherty & Hood, P.A. Senior Attorney/Lobbyist J.D. Burton and Senior Policy Analyst Steve Peterson have led a multi-tiered effort this fall to help boost economic development and job growth in greater Minnesota. As part of their work for the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities, Burton and Peterson have engaged dozens of local chambers of commerce, Economic Development Authority professionals, city leaders, and others to identify many of the programs or policies needed to enhance economic recovery outside the Metro Area. Burton and Peterson will present feedback and recommendations to the CGMC’s membership in November, followed by official introduction of policy recommendations at the Capitol next year.
