Rep. Tony Sertich (DFL-Chisholm) is expected to resign his House seat Thursday, after being appointed as commissioner of the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board.

Sertich, who was elected to his sixth term representing District 5B, served as House majority leader during the last two biennia.

“I have great confidence that Representative Sertich will be an outstanding Commissioner of the IRRRB and will provide the strong leadership that the agency needs to fulfill its important mission to the people on the Iron Range,” said Gov. Mark Dayton in a news release announcing the appointment.

The IRRRB, located in Eveleth, is an economic development agency with the mission to advance growth on the Iron Range by “stabilizing and enhancing the economy of northeastern Minnesota.”

According to the release, Dayton will call a special election for Feb. 15 to fill the seat. If a primary is needed, it will be held Feb. 1.
