Rybak nominates Mike Christenson to lead CPED

Mayor R.T. Rybak has tapped Mike Christenson, the city’s economic development director, to head the city’s Department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED).

The department has been led by Lee Sheehy since 2003. Sheehy is leaving the job to serve as chief of staff for U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

In a prepared statement, Rybak said Christenson is the “right person” to take the city and neighborhoods to “the next level.”
