Confirmation hearing to be by phone for DEED Commissioner Sieben

Minnesota’s Commissioner of the Department of Employment and Economic Development Katie Clark Sieben is working full time from home these days, pregnant with twins and on doctor-ordered bed rest.

But she’ll “attend” her scheduled confirmation hearing in the state Senate on Wednesday via phone.

MPR’s Tom Scheck reports that “Cathy Polasky, who recently retired as director of Economic Policy and Development for the City of Minneapolis, will run the department on an interim basis when Sieben is on maternity leave.”
