"We need to pay pack the debt we owe our schools," agreed Julie Bleyhl, legislative director for AFSCME Council 5.
"We have a backlog of funding problems that past legislatures haven't dealt with and have put off," she said, noting that track record puts an extra burden on the incoming legislature. "We have a structural deficit. We need to fix that."
"We also want to make sure that revenue is raised in a fair way and those that can afford - the millionaires - pay their fair share as well," Bleyhl said.
"We pride ourselves in Minnesota with our schools, our higher education, our transportation systems, our health care, and we need to continue to make investments to assure we not only stay competitive but we succeed," she said.
"The change with the majority party provides an opportunity to do positive things for Minnesotans, for working families, to improve the economy, and to improve public services and programs in the state," Bleyhl said.
"Union members and working families need to continue to communicate with their legislators and their co-workers," Bleyhl urged.

Julie Bleyhl
Julie Bleyhl has served on AURI's board since 1989, when it became an independent nonprofit, and prior to that served on AURI's steering committee. She was AURI board chair for six years.
Raised on a farm near Madison, Minn., Bleyhl now works for AFSCME Council 6 in St. Paul and represents the Minnesota Farmers Union on the AURI board.
"AURI bridges a gap not filled by any other organization," Bleyhl says, with its "technical services, feasibility studies and laboratory services. AURI is positioned throughout Minnesota, which provides access for clients."
Bleyhl says serving family farmers and rural communities is central to AURI's mission. One of the most important emerging opportunities to boost the rural economy, she says, is renewable energy.
