ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The Minnesota Historical Society announced today that David Jennings will join its staff on Sept. 13 as director of finance and administration.He will oversee the Society's $31 million budget and its administrative functions including operations at the Society's headquarters at the Minnesota History Center.
Jennings, 55, has held prominent positions in both the public and private sectors.Most recently, he served as interim superintendent for the Minneapolis Public Schools, following two years as its chief operating officer.From 1979 to 1986, Jennings served in the Minnesota House of Representatives from the Truman area.He concluded his career in the position of speaker of the house.He subsequently returned to his home area serving for eight years as vice president of administration with Schwan's Foods in Marshall, Minn.
After a brief stint as commissioner of the Department of Commerce in the administration of Governor Jesse Ventura, Jennings accepted a position as chief executive officer for the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce.
Jennings describes his move to the Minnesota Historical Society as a logical step in pursuing his commitment to education and public service."There is no other organization in this state that has been educating the public as long and as consistently as the Society," said Jennings.
Jennings' appointment comes at a critical time for the Society as the organization strives to continue its record for service to the state's people in the face of substantial reductions in its budget.
"We are honored to have David join us," said Director Nina Archabal.

David Jennings Named Permanent Minneapolis Superintendent
CONTINUED CORRUPTION PATROL -- On Tuesday, September 23, 2003, the Minneapolis School Board announced (at a costly school board retreat) that district Chief Operating Officer David Jennings is their choice to be the Permanent Superintendent of the Minneapolis Public Schools. Jennings said he'd "gladly and proudly" accept the position after his costly contract negotiations. School Board Scumbags are expected to vote on his not-yet-drafted contract proposal sometime in October 2003.
David Jennings Jennings will take over for Carol Johnson, who finished up her "work" at Pencil-Pusher Central on Friday, September 19, 2003, before moving to Memphis, where she will take over that city's school system in early fall 2003.
Qualifications, Please!
Jennings, who was scheduled to become acting superintendent on October 1, 2003, will be taking over as permanent superintendent immediately. The board basically chose Jennings for expediency, though they claim he has qualifications, too. Maybe, but the only qualifications that we can see is the ability to be an obedient yes-man when dealing with the board's wasteful ways. This impression is only reinforced by Board Chair Sharon Henry-Blythe's comments to the Star Tribune: "We want to stay on the path we're on because we feel we're moving in the right this point in the development of the district, I think the leadership that David can provide can really serve us well."1
Not surprisingly, Sundin's main issue with David Jennings' selection is that he was forced to institute a wage freeze for all district staff to keep the Minneapolis Public Schools from going broke, a decision that is becoming a big issue in the district's ongoing contract negotiations with the teacher's union.
More Wasteful Spending Ahead!
As if this appointment isn't bad enough, because of his lack of educational experience, Jennings would like to hire an "Experienced Chief Academic Officer" to assist if we needed another overpaid and underworked bureaucrat on the payroll!
So, it seems like things will remain the same at the Minneapolis Public Schools--Exorbitant salaries for administrators, wasteful spending, declining graduation rates, stagnant achievement and appalling suspension rates. Sure, he froze salaries, but how long do you think that policy will last?
