ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Former Minnesota House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher is gaining a spot on the governing board for dozens of state colleges and universities.

Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday named Kelliher and four others to the 15-member Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees. The appointments are for six-year terms except in the case of student trustees who serve two-year terms.

Kelliher was a state legislator for 12 years before an ill-fated run for governor. Dayton beat her in the Democratic primary.

The other selections are Ann Anaya, Dawn Erlandson, Alex Cirillo, Alfredo Oliveira and Maria Peluso.
