    The 2010 elections are right around the corner and it's time to start getting serious about gubernatorial candidates.  The great state of Minnesota has been devoid of true vision and leadership under the Pawlenty administration and we are in need of fundamental change that can move us forward instead of backwards. 

    R. T. Rybak is just the man for the job!  As mayor of Minneapolis he has been able to turn that city around by the passing of his ethics policies, balancing the budget eight consecutive years, streamlining government jobs, reducing crime and stepping up to the plate on education through his "Minnesota Promise" which unites public education with corporations to help students get summer jobs as well as entrance to colleges.

    Through humble beginnings, R. T. quickly learned the value of family, education and having a vision for the future.  His father passed away when R. T. was ten.   His mother had to take over the family drug store but later was forced to sell it when it became too difficult to raise her three children and run the store at the same time.  She was then able to get a job working at Breck School in Golden Valley and later, obtained her degree.

    R. T. graduated from Boston College in 1978 and moved back to Minnesota where he was a reporter and editor for Sun Newspapers and later the Star Tribune.  As an entrepreneur, he started his own marketing business before running for Mayor of Minneapolis in 2001 where he has developed the reputation as someone who’s not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get to work.

    R. T. is just the type of visionary and leader with a proven track record as well as the common sense and courage to make tough decisions that the state of Minnesota needs.  Vote for R. T. Rybak and vote for a better tomorrow!
