MINNESOTA - Minnesota 2020, a think tank founded by former DFL legislator Matt Entenza seven years ago, is shutting down.
Stuart Alger, a Minneapolis attorney and Minnesota 2020 board chairman, confirmed Monday that the board will close its doors. Alger said six to eight full-time employees would be laid off — primarily writers and researchers.
Alger said the funding just hasn’t been there as it was in the past. The organization is a 501c3 nonprofit, and Alger said it relied on private support, including donations from labor organizations and foundations.
