History

Ted Mondale Ted Mondale quits stadium authority amid suites controversy

After serving in the Minnesota State Senate, Mondale sought the Democratic primary nomination for Minnesota governor in 1998. The race included three other candidates from families famously connected in Minnesota politics: Skip Humphrey, the son of former Vice President Hubert Humphrey (then Attorney General); Mark Dayton of the Dayton Department Store dynasty (then State Auditor); and Mike Freeman, son of former governor Orville Freeman (then Hennepin County, Minnesota district attorney). Mondale, who was more fiscally moderate than the other candidates and who had distanced himself from labor, did not prevail in the primary.

He oversaw the initiation of high density housing/retail development in the Twin Cities, as well as light-rail transportation planning from the suburban areas to the central cities. In 2011, he was named chair of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission by Governor Mark Dayton. In 2012, Mondale was named the CEO of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.
