Quasi-Governmental Boards and Commissions

This is quite the takedown of the opaque selection process for the SPPA CEO, and a condemnation of Minnesota open meeting statutes more broadly.

Nothing like a good quango.

Does the SPPA have a purpose other than perpetuating the SPPA? It's hard to believe that Saint Paul doesn't have enough suburban-style industrial parks by now.

They're the official #pourtheslab underworld of the east metro.

How many of you are on city commissions? I'm interested in getting more involved locally (recently applied for the Rush Line Community Advisory Committee). Now I see that my city has 2 vacancies on the Environmental Advisory Commission. I don't have a background in governance or planning. I'm just interested in making my corner of the metro better. Think I'd be considered without experience or formal education? Thanks for any advice.
