Letter: Sen. Nelson has innovative ideas needed in Senate
Originally published in the Post Bulletin
In our rapidly changing and challenging world, we need leaders with innovative ideas and a passion to make them happen. Carla Nelson is that leader.
Sen. Carla Nelson’s data analytic legislation has saved significant taxpayer dollars by preventing and detecting fraud and by promoting operational efficiencies in state government. The innovation does not stop with the use of real-time data analytics. Sen. Nelson’s requirement that the vendors be paid on the back end — out of the savings — is innovative and is a real pay-for-performance plan.
Sen. Nelson’s legislation allows local units of government to use her innovative data analytics pay-for-performance model to save significant cost savings and efficiencies at the local level.
Sen. Nelson embraces technology and works in bipartisan partnership to get things done. Just what we need in St. Paul.
Vote to keep Carla Nelson working for us.
