Governor appoints Sertich to Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has appointed former state legislator and Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board Commissioner Tony Sertich to serve as a member of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has appointed former state legislator and Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board Commissioner Tony Sertich to serve as a member of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.

Sertich, who currently is employed as president of the Northland Foundation headquartered in Duluth, will fill a seat left vacant following the recent resignation of former Senate Majority Leader Duane Benson.

In a statement issued this week, Dayton said: "Tony Sertich has successfully led major economic development projects. He is also experienced in bringing fractious leaders together to achieve their shared goals. Both of these skills will be valuable additions to the MSFA Board."

The MSFA consists of five members, with three appointed by the governor and two appointed by the city of Minneapolis. It is charged with oversight of the design, construction and operation of U.S. Bank Stadium, the new multi-purpose downtown Minneapolis venue that will be home to the Minnesota Vikings.
