I wish the Governor a speedy recovery and that this surgery fixes the problems, but I do have a concern ( those who feel my information is wrong, on the upper right corner, put in the Mayo Clinic name and read articles written by the Star Tribune), many people in this state will not have access to Mayo Clinic. I also wonder if there is a conflict of interest with the Governor and his Chief of Staff Tina Smith with the Mayo Clinic? If tax money is being used to help Mayo expand, then should not everyone in the state have access to it? The people living in the Mayo zone are paying higher premiums through MNsure than the twin cities and they still will not have direct access to Mayo Clinic. It looks like there is a parallel between Mayo Clinic and the Vikings Stadium. The people of Minnesota are expected to help build it, but not everyone will be able to afford or access the money that is suppose to be used road, bridges, etc. Rochester should get some help, but to this degree and in the future, to what limit?

I wonder how prescription pain narcotics will mix with Dayton's pysch meds. He really should not be allowed to govern until he has recovered. He has enough problems understanding things on his usual medication which is quite obvious as he didn't understand the stadium contract and his MNSure disaster.

With hopes he has a speedy recovery, I hope he finally has time to reflect and act on his 2010 campaign promise to help fix the Lake Mille Lacs mess. 1000's of Mn. jobs are on the line on his watch as the Mille Lacs area and related economy is crashing. Governor? Work at healing things up there while your hip heals. You promised on video in 2010. Time to back of your words with action now, as you heal your hip. Again, good luck with the hip surgery and re-hab. Please help us at Lake Mille Lacs per your 2010 promise!
