Appointees to Stadium Construction and OperationDear Amy,
Last Thursday, June 14, the five members of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) who will oversee the construction and operation of the new stadium in Downtown East Minneapolis were appointed by Governor Mark Dayton and Mayor R.T. Rybak. Comprised of three appointees by Governor Dayton and two selections by Mayor Rybak, the following five individuals will lead the largest public project in state history:
Governor Dayton’s Appointees
Chair – Michele Kelm-Helgen – Former Deputy Chief of Staff, Governor Dayton’s Office
John Griffith – Executive Vice President of Property Development, Target Corporation
Duane Benson – Former State Senator, business executive and NFL linebacker
Mayor Rybak’s Appointees
Dr. Barbara Butts Williams – Dean, Capella University
Bill McCarthy – President, Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation
The five-person Authority will immediately begin to meet with all stakeholders to ensure the new stadium is built to fit the needs of the State of Minnesota, the City of Minneapolis and the Vikings. The next step in the process is to establish a design and construction group made up of representatives of the MSFA and the team.
What’s next for Minnesota Momentum?
We want to thank you once again for all of your hard work during this stadium process. Without your efforts, we would not be moving forward on this exciting project. So what’s next? Over the four years leading to the stadium’s opening in 2016, we want to keep you informed on the design, planning and construction process and continue to seek feedback from you and all of our most passionate supporters. Our intention with Minnesota Momentum is to serve as your resource for accurate updates and opportunities surrounding the new stadium. We also will let you know which elected officials voted for the new stadium proposal so you have accurate information during the upcoming election. If you do not wish to receive these updates, you can unsubscribe here.
If you have thoughts about what Minnesota Momentum should look like moving forward, please feel free to submit feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support!

Vote For Peterson As The FedEx Ground Player of the WeekFans are encouraged to visit NFL.com to vote for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, who is nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award after his dominant performance in last Sunday's 24-10 win over the Lions at Mall of America Field.
Peterson had 23 carries for 160 yards and two touchdowns, including one that went 80 yards, in the Vikings' victory.
Fans can vote for one player in each category on NFL.com/FedEx from 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday through noon EST on Friday to determine the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week. The winners will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com. New this year, fans will be able to keep tabs on the achievements of their favorite Air & Ground players (and others) with the NFL Milestone Tracker, presented by FedEx.
Fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground program, FedEx continues its support of Safe Kids USA by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Safe Kids coalitions in that team's city, is used for pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year, from upgraded crosswalks and safety signs to traffic barriers and educational training.
