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.
