Goff Public visits the Iron Range

On behalf of the Iron Ore Alliance, Heidi Larson and Chris Duffy joined the Legislative Permanent School Fund Commission’s tour of Minntac, Minnesota’s largest producer of iron ore pellets.

Over the past 15 years, U. S. Steel’s Minnesota Ore Operations at Minntac and Keetac have provided approximately $370 million to Minnesota public schools through the Minnesota permanent school fund. For more information, visit the Iron Ore Alliance website.

Intern and extern collaborate

In August, St. Cloud State University communications professor Jannet Walsh observed Goff Public in action through a grant from the Hubbard Broadcasting Foundation. She will share what she learned from her externship with her PR students.

During her time with us, Jannet interviewed our team on PR topics and helped our Right Track intern Najma Ali film and edit a video about the Right Track program.

Ms. Emerson goes to Boston

Director of Government Relations Elizabeth Emerson attended the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit in Boston last month, returning with valuable insights to enhance our government relations expertise. Legislators from around the country (including a dozen Minnesota legislative leaders) gathered to discuss state legislative trends and adopt positions for state government advocacy at the federal level. This year’s summit focused on state legislative options to address emerging intelligence technology, aging state voting systems, and troubling increases in opioid use.
