Because of my career, I have had relationships with five different law firms in Minneapolis, and I always come back to Winthrop & Weinstine[…]I would recommend them for both small cases and large ones. I have used them in both and have never been disappointed.

Quotes from Tom Hanson's MPR Interview Featured in "Countdown to a shutdown"

As a possible shutdown looms, organizations that may be affected by the shutdown express frustration with the Minnesota state government in a Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) article.

“I don’t think either side wants to shut down,” said Winthrop & Weinstine lobbyist Tom Hanson, who was the commissioner of Minnesota Management & Budget under former Governor Tim Pawlenty. “It’s not something you want on your resume” (qtd. in Dunbar). Tom also discussed the possible shutdown with MPR hosts on “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”

Organizations that aren’t considered “critical” include the Minnesota Zoo, Canterbury Park and MNDOT, the organization that heads road construction projects.
