Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Steve Kelley visits WTIP

Steve Kelley, a former Minnesota legislator and Fellow at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, was named as Minnesota Department of Commerce commissioner in January 2019.

Kelley is following the lead of Governor Tim Walz and Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan and reaching out to communities across the state. Kelley visited the North Shore this week.

He spent some time in Two Harbors, speaking with area health care navigators there, learning about the challenges they face while helping citizens obtain health coverage.

Here in Cook County, he visited with representatives of the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior, a local bank, and Arrowhead Electric Cooperative. And, he stopped by WTIP Community Radio.

Here’s his conversation with WTIP’s Rhonda Silence.
