Radinovich resigns from IRRR after controversial hiring decision

Joe Radinovich will resign from his position with the Department of Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation after the state agency’s hiring decision came into question.

The IRRR hired Radinovich, a former 8th district congressional candidate, in early March with a six-figure salary plus state benefits for a position made specifically him, Ely-based newspaper The TimberJay reported.

Radinovich’s resignation is effective April 30, 2019.

“It’s my intent to refocus the public’s attention on the important mission of the Iron Range Resources & Rehabilitation through my action today,” Radinovich wrote.
