Historical Society approves new director


Although a committee already offered him the job, the Goodhue County Historical Society Board of Directors on Monday voted unanimously to approve hiring Dustin Heckman as the organization’s new executive director.

But Heckman said he wasn’t told his hiring was contingent on the vote, and it was his understanding that the offer already was finalized when he accepted it around two weeks ago.
