An agenda item for the February 11, 2013 Red Wing City Council meeting as citizens respond to Red Wing Mayor Dennis Egan's new job as executive director and registered lobbyist for the newly formed Minnesota Industrial Sand Council, a division of Aggregate & Ready Mix Association of Minnesota, .

The original document online calls MISC the "Independent" council, but it's anything but independent of corporate interests.

The Rochester Post Bulletin has called for Egan to quit his new job or resign as Mayor.
