Who cares about diversity. Just build it right and on budget. I hope none of these firms were involved in the building of the Lowery Ave Bridge. If so, the vikings could be playing at U for years.

So much for getting the best and the brightest. I guess we have quotas to fill. Unreal.

I'd rather know how many of those minority or women owned businesses are going to actually do the work? more than likely, they have a large business behind them who will be sub-contracted the work.

Ugly stadium picture. Keep the dome. Fix our roads. Tons of roads statewide could use work.

It's discriminating to point out women or minority owned businesses.

Irrelevant if electronic pull tabs will not fund the stadium. Based on earlier stories, no new stadium will be built because there is no active and reliable funding source.

Who's going to pay them? Since it was annouced that electronic pull tabs was a failure Dayton, Rybek,and Mondale all have been very interestingly mia.

No mention of low-bidder or capability to do the work. I guess when you've got all that non-existent gambling money to throw around those things don't matter.

As the old saying goes " you get what you paid for". Hopefully some of the contracts went to non -union companies.
