State Chamber Board elects Baker chair-elect

ST. PAUL — Dave Baker was elected chair-elect of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for 2013-14. He is owner of Baker Hospitalities Inc. of Willmar.

Baker would take over as chairman in October 2014. Baker said he was humbled and honored to be asked to serve at that role.

“It’s a state organization that has a lot of members,’’ he said today. “Being an outstate small business guy, I feel a lot of responsibility to try to help guide the business community to smart legislation to support job creators like businesses that we are, trying to help continue the message that a vibrant economy doesn’t mean high taxes.’’
