Hello! I am Laura Kalambokidis, a Professor in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota, where I teach Public Finance and do research on federal, state, and local tax issues. I am also an Extension Economist with University of Minnesota Extension. I created the “Building Extension’s Public Value” workshop and accompanying curriculum, and I have taught the program in seventeen states. If you have any questions about the program or about this web site, please contact me at email@example.com, or leave a comment on the blog. I look forward from hearing from you!
