Housing First Minnesota Leadership Meets with Former Governor Pawlenty

He's only been in the race for about one month, but he has had the job before. Governor Tim Pawlenty (R, Eagan) met with Housing First Minnesota leadership on Friday to discuss a variety of housing issues and his campaign to become Minnesota's governor once again.

Among the many topics discussed were Minnesota's regulatory environment, the construction workforce shortage, and the role of the Metropolitan Council.

We know that regardless of who is elected, we need to be able to communicate the keys issues that are facing the housing/construction industry. We believe that discussions like these are extraordinarily valuable as we look toward the future of Minnesota’s housing industry.
