I was thinking of doing this post later, but there’s something to be said for ripping the band aid off. After 5 years and 9 months, I’m leaving the SDWC. I’m moving on to other opportunities which preclude me from participating in politics in this manner.
You’ll be in good hands, as I’ve recruited several good people to offer their opinions on South Dakota politics. In fact, to give the new writers a fresh start, the slate has been wiped clean, and all you’ll find here (except this post) are their thoughts on politics exclusively.
MC, Mike H, TC at AC, RC (aka Reagan Conservative), and TV’s Kristi Golden will all be offering their comments, as well as a few others who may join up. I’m going to be sitting with Troy Jones at the game feed on Wednesday, and I’ll twist his arm to join these 3 men and 2 women in discussing the state and national political meme from a Republican point of view.
It’s my fervent hope that it remains entertaining, relevant, and maybe even a little controversial and news breaking from time to time.
The SDWC grew out of my frustrations as well as my hopes. It went from being a little website that my wife claimed no more than 13 people read to a website read by thousands daily. And it will continue to be so, just without me doing any of the writing. I’d ask you to support the new authors with your comments, and don’t forget to support the site via the beg button to keep it going another 5 3/4 years.
It has been wild and it has been fun.
Thanks, and goodbye.
