Gov. Mark Dayton has named Ted Mondale as the new chair of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission.
Dayton announced the appointment today. Mondale is a former state legislator and former Chair of the Metropolitan Council. As MSFC chair, he'll oversee management of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.
"Ted Mondale is uniquely qualified to lead this important organization at this critical time," Dayton said in a news release. "His exceptional dedication to public service, his business experience, and his established relationships with key decision-makers will enable him to represent the best interests of the people of Minnesota in attempting to negotiate a new 'People's Stadium.'"
Mondale replaces Roy Terwilliger, who was appointed chair in 2003.
