Wonder how many times the lemmings have re-elected Goodwin or is this her first go around at implementing socialism?
Goodwin is no dummy. But she certainly is not smart either. The guy commenting on the PiPress site had it 100% correct. It appears that her only job has been as an elected representative and as a honorary type educator.
And we all know that means she does not have a clue how the real world works.
Goodwin attended North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, then went on to Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota, receiving her B.A. with numerous honors in Sociology and Political Science.
Goodwin served on the Columbia Heights School Board from November 2009 until becoming a member of the Senate, and has also served as an adjunct professor at the Hamline University Graduate School of Business in Saint Paul from 2008 until 2010, teaching legislative practice and government contracting.
On June 1, 2010, Goodwin filed as a DFL candidate for the Minnesota Senate representing District 50. The district includes the cities of Arden Hills, Columbia Heights, Fridley, Hilltop, New Brighton, Shoreview and St. Anthony and is divided between Anoka and Ramsey Counties. On June 28, 2010, the district committee voted to revoke the endorsement from embattled incumbent Senator Satveer Chaudhary and grant it to her. She defeated Chaudhary in the August 10, 2010, DFL Primary, garnering 70% of the vote to Chaudhary's 30%. She subsequently won the November 2, 2010, General Election, garnering 52% to Republican Gina Bauman's 41% and Independent Rae Hart Anderson's 6%.
Goodwin was re-elected to District 41 in 2012, receiving 62.82% of the vote and defeating Republican candidate Gina Bauman.
Goodwin previously served as a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from 2001 to 2007. While in the House, she specialized in state budget issues, consumer protections, homeowner construction and repair protections, jobs, education, health care and business and labor issues. She also supported expanded transit options.
Her special legislative concerns include jobs, budget, consumers, and health care. Goodwin encountered controversy when she was quoted in the Minneapolis Star Tribune as saying that although she supports gay marriage, she is uncomfortable about moving so quickly to legalize it in Minnesota.
