Dayton Visiting Mankato Kids 20 Mar 12

Governor Dayton will be in Mankato today (TUE) to participate in assemblies with 6th-graders at Garfield and Franklin Elementary Schools. At each school the Governor will give brief remarks and then take questions from students. Mankato 6th-graders travel to the State Capitol on a field trip every year, but this year the money that is traditionally used for that field trip was stolen, so Dayton is bringing the Capitol to them. The community is continuing to raise money to replace the stolen funds, however, so the students do not miss the opportunity to visit St. Paul.
