West Central Tribune: More than half of Walz’s cabinet picks are women with one left to be chosen

EXCERPT: “More than half of those picked to lead Minnesota departments and agencies are women. The announcement came Friday, Jan. 4, as Gov.-elect Tim Walz filled out his cabinet, naming his picks to lead key state economic and labor posts. The seven picks for departments that lead economic development, commerce, labor and industry and state revenue leave the administration with just one commissioner slot yet to be filled and they fleshed out a tapestry of diversity in terms of gender representation, ethnicity and geography. More than half of the 23 commissioners slated to serve are women, one in five is a person of color or is indigenous and 20 percent live in Greater Minnesota.” FULLSTORY: http://bit.ly/2QriXde
