Minnesota Governor-elect Tim Walz has announced five appointments to his administration. The agriculture commissioner post was not included in today’s announcement. Walz has selected former House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher as the transportation commissioner. Anderson Kelliher grew up on a dairy farm in Blue Earth County and represented portions of Minneapolis in the state legislature. In 2010, Anderson Kelliher was the DFL-endorsed candidate for governor, but lost the nomination for Mark Dayton.
