NonProfit makes sense since this Rybak spends so much money any company he runs will never make a profit.

So another "leader" scurries off to live in ignominy and anonymity rather than face the voters and try to justify his disregard of them and the city charter. Under the circumstances it's probably a good career move but it's certainly not the big-time job he obviously assumed he'd be offered by Pres. Obama, Gov. Dayton, or Mayor Bloomberg.

He will have to wait about 50 years to run for gov. The people of this state will not forget how he suppressed the taxpayers of Mpls from weighing in the Stadium fiasco. Maybe he should go to work for the Wilfs...

Hmmm, you'd think that the organization "Generation Next" would be registered with the Secretary of State, but it doesn't show up in a search. It's also not on Guidestar (the national database that posts the Form 990--federal reporting form, for all nonprofits).

Like Rybak ever cared about the racial achievement gap. He just wasted $$Millions in MPLS taxpayers dollars that could have helped these kids.

All politicians, when their terms are up, should have to work in the private sector for at least 4 years.

Well, their website lists 19 groups as organizations who support Generation Next. Of the 19, only 4 are absolute private businesses: 3M, Target, Cargill, and General Mills. The other 15 are other non-profits, government-funded operations, or governments themselves. Included in that are City of Minneapolis, City of St. Paul, St. Paul Public Schools, Minneapolis Public Schools, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, and the University of Minnesota. So, it looks like for the most part their funding comes from John Q. Public. Total shocker that Rybak is headed this way. I'm wondering if his first task is to get Generation Next a shiny new building?
