Happy 90th Birthday to Governor Al Quie From Ecumen, Have Fun in the Saddle Today!

We don't think Governor Quie is going to quite follow his doctor's orders :), Happy Birthday, Governor Quie

Governor Al Quie turns 90-years-old today.  He is celebrated across the political aisle as a public servant (emphasis on servant) as someone who sought to build compromise to move Minnesota forward.  In other words – a leader. 

According to Pioneer Press political reporter Bill Salisbury, Governor Quie hopes to celebrate his birthday by riding his horse, a favorite pastime.  However, Quie says with a laugh, “But my doctor made me promise that I would not train another colt.” 

We’re not buying it, especially after watching this recent video of Ecumen colleague Alex Hiniker riding horse with the Governor.  That horse he’s riding?  It’s Rambler, one he recently trained.

Happy Birthday, Governor Quie, have a great ride today!  Thank you for your service and helping make this a better place.
