PR Rock Star Award: Dayton's Arms Wide Open

And the January PR Rock Star Award goes to . . . Mark Dayton.

Regardless of whether or not you support Obamacare, Minnesota’s new governor yesterday did the PR world proud. Inviting tea party protestors into the signing of the state Medicare expansion into law and then going even further and giving them the podium, set a perfect tone for his new administration.

Kudos to the Governor and his PR people. We know it’s hard to give up control, and we enjoyed watching their bold move pay off.
