Rukavina to work for Nolan’s office

Old news to some, but former State Rep. Tom Rukavina (DFL-Pike Lake) will be taking a position in the office of U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan (D-MN8).

According to this Duluth News Tribune story, the position’s details have yet to be worked out. It’s possible that it could be related to a constituent office on the Iron Range, though I’m also hearing it could be related to mining policy. That would represent a rather firm statement by the Nolan team, as Rukavina is one of the more outspoken supporters of nonferrous mineral mining in northern Minnesota.

It will be interesting to see how the opinionated Rukavina fares as a member of a congressional office in which he is not the Congressman.
