The article hits it at the end, and I would assume it is correct: it's probably Jan Callison's spot to lose, assuming she wants it. Peter McLaughlin hasn't been chair before, but he is chair of HCRRA and of CTIB, positions I assume he enjoys enormously. Marion Greene is obviously too new, though I suppose Linda Higgins has enough experience. Randy Johnson was longtime chair before Opat and he is likely retiring in 2016 (based on age and length of service). Jeff Johnson obviously would not have the support of his colleagues.Finally, some good political news. http://m.startribune.com/politics/state ... ?section=/
Whoever it is, they'd better not stand in the way of Midtown corridor like Opat has been doing.
Also, who thinks Opat is gearing up for a run at Governor in 2018? He'd likely be a very strong (establishment) candidate.
