That’s a travesty, because a partnership with Sanford might have been good for Fairview and for the state.

The qyestionmay be asked is Sanford good for Minnesota jobs? It seems after Sanford's merger/takeover of Merit Care Bemidji. Alot of Merit Care people were not working anymore.

"The current silence and lack of interest in Fairview from the university is now deafening." This is incorrect. Fairview's acting CEO wrote to President Kaler informing him that this was not the time to speak of the U taking over Fairview. Other talks between the U and Fairview about their future together are ongoing. Even Sanford is not absolutely out of the picture.

Apparently this old guy doesn't like Lori Swanson vey much. That's up to him. However, the Universiy is a much different situation than anything to do with Allina anad I think most Minnesotans are pleased that at least now the situation is made open and transparent.

Good, honest article. The extreme left wing agenda and "leadership" is totally ineffective and dysfunctional in this state.
