"While Democrats vilified Pawlenty for vetoing gas tax increases three times to conserve his no-new-taxes pledge, they also complained that Molnau hadn't pushed hard enough for money and didn't have the credentials to lead a 4,500-person state agency that oversees more than 11,000 miles of highways and 2,700 bridges."[clearing throat]a-hum, they are the ones who confirmed her into the position in the first place--so apparently they didn't have a problem with her credentials at the time...thank you.
So now we will have to come up with
See what they didn't tell the public, and have been keeping very quiet, is that Malnau chose to be paid her regular Liut. Gov. pay of $80,000 to save the taxpayer's money, instead of taking the higher pay.
What they also aren't telling you that she has gotten more road projects finished in the 5 yrs she was commish than any other commish for a comperable amount of time, that should say a LOT!
This was clear party politics....and the people will pay for it with their pocket books. And no, I do not think that the road projects will go any faster now that she's out of there....all I see is a new person coming in and asking for more money to finish the same projects.
**sorry mis-heard the numbers...the figure should be $108,ooo/yr
