Minnesota Governor-Elect Tim Walz’s plan is to have his cabinet appointments made by Inauguration Day January 7. Minnesota Corn Growers Association Past President Harold Wolle is part of the Walz advisory board, representing agriculture. “I’ve been in contact with the various ag groups and encouraged to have their members who are qualified apply. Particularly in the agriculture commissioner position, we want someone who is collaborative and works with everyone in the Minnesota agriculture community.” There is apparently strong interest in the agriculture commissioner and other key roles within the Walz administration. There is still time to apply. “Candidates who are interested need to apply by midnight December 7. You don’t have a lot of time to think about it; if you’re interested, do your due diligence and apply.” The Walz advisory board met this past week and two more face-to-face meetings are planned.
