Kelm-Helgen waived $55k in event rent

Michele Kelm-Helgen, former chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Commission, waived more that $55,000 in rent for use of a luxury club space at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

While heading the agency overseeing U.S. Bank Stadium, Michele Kelm-Helgen waived more than $55,300 in rent for event spaces without consulting the agency’s staff, executive director or fellow board members.

Among the 14 groups that got free use of the luxury spaces at the state-owned stadium were the Twin Cities Dunkers, a local sports booster club, and the PGA of America, the hosts of last year’s Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club.
