Commissioner Steve Grove leaves Department of Employment and Economic Development

ABC News reports

Commissioner Steve Grove is leaving his position to serve as CEO & Publisher of the Star Tribune. Grove was appointed by Governor Walz in January 2019.

With a nod to his work related to broadband…

“We will greatly miss Commissioner Grove’s tenacity, leadership, and strategic vision,” said Lieutenant Governor Flanagan. “By expanding access to high-speed broadband and affordable child care and making historic investments in BIPOC-owned businesses, Commissioner Grove has built a more equitable and inclusive economy for Minnesotans across the state. He truly turned the vision of making Minnesota the best state to live, work, and raise a family – no matter your income, race, or zip code – into action. We are better off thanks to Commissioner Grove’s work, and I know he will be successful in his next role.”

Hopefully, they will find a new commissioner who will continue to build out broadband in Minnesota.
