Elect Cory Merrifield to Represent Vikings Fans on Sports Authority

 Dear Vikings Fans,

If I may be so bold, I want to represent you on the newly forming Sports Authority! In order to represent the fans as the new Vikings stadium is being built I need to be appointed to the Sports Authority by Governor Mark Dayton.

Multiple sources have indicated that Dayton will be making his appointments to the Sports Authority over the next week.

Please email Governor Mark Dayton today asking him to appoint Cory Merrifield, Founder of SavetheVikes.org to the Sports Authority to represent Vikings fans from across Minnesota!

I feel fully qualified to act on the Sports Authority for the following reasons:

  • Veteran season ticket owner that has travelled to several modern professional sports venues.
  • Experienced project manager on multimillion dollar commercial construction projects and casinos.
  • Expert level understanding of communications infrastructure and electrical engineering, ADA standards and commercial fire prevention, surveillance and security.
  • Subject Matter Expert in the area of stadia financing, funding model and athletic facility management

As a member of the Sports Authority I would see to it that the best possible fan experience would be brokered fairly between the Vikings, state of Minnesota and the city of Minneapolis.

I have repeatedly emailed the Governor’s office requesting to interview for the position and have not received any response. And while the Governor is reportedly close to making his appointments the position has not been posted publicly. All I am asking for is a fair chance at due process and to interview for a spot on the Sports Authority.

I am counting on you, the fans, to get his attention and help me get appointed so we can collectively experience the best game day experience Minnesota has to offer!

Here is how you can reach Governor Mark Dayton:

Please remember to be courteous and that this is a non partisan position, so no need for political comments. I thank you in advance for your support and look forward to the possibility of representing you and all other Vikings fans on the new Sports Authority!
