Who’s advocating for Minnesota?

To the editor:

In response to the guest columnist, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce President, David C. Olson, I was surprised to read such a blatant call to businesses to move to Wisconsin or Florida.

Is this how the president of the Minnesota Chamber should spend his time and powers? Shilling for the anti-tax “job-creators” (still waiting for the jobs, by the way) instead of cheer leading for the state to actually attract businesses?

Is it part of his job description to denigrate the state for which he is supposed to increase business by pointing out the other states where taxes are lower?

Our quality of life and life expectancy is proof that extra cost pays off in the long run. But investors aren’t interested in the long run, just the quick profit.
