Kendall Qualls Calls for End to Government Waste of Taxpayer Dollars in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS – Recent news reports revealed Minneapolis and Hennepin County government employees have been getting paid six-figure salaries despite not having the necessary qualifications or residing in the state. Drawing attention to this issue, Republican gubernatorial candidate Kendall Qualls called for an end to the government waste and new leadership to restore accountability in Minneapolis.
“Voters are looking around and wondering how we ended up here. How is it that in the middle of a record crime wave, the Minneapolis 911 center’s director has zero experience in public safety? Why was the Hennepin County Library Director paid $60,000 in “emotional damages” after managing the county’s library system from a condo in L.A.? Residents deserve answers to these questions and right now there is zero accountability.
As governor, there would be leadership from the top to ensure there’s more accountability for residents in the largest city and county. Minnesotans are tired of electing the same type of leaders who pass the buck and point fingers at other people to solve problems. Only an outsider is capable of restoring accountability and putting an end to the government waste because that money belongs to taxpayers, not government bureaucrats.”
