I need your feedback on Vikings Stadium plans  


Minneapolis Mayor R. T. Rybak and Council President Barb Johnson have submitted an outline to Governor Dayton with a plan to finance a new Vikings stadium.  Click here to see the plan that was submitted. I’d like to know what you think. Click here to provide your input in my Facebook poll.  You can also sent comments to me via email at



The plan submitted by Mayor Rybak and Council President Johnson would take existing sales taxes that maintain the Minneapolis Convention Center, and apply them to the Target Center debt and towards a new Vikings stadium. The plan also identifies a new Block E casino as a possible source of alternative revenue.


I appreciate hearing from you.
