The Capital Journal has a story today with a rundown of the transitions in the Constitutional Offices, including comings, goings, and new deputies:
Chosen by Haeder as the new Deputy of the State Treasurer is Jason Williams, Pierre. Williams previously served as communications director for the Secretary of State’s office.
“The Auditor’s Office will have to be issuing checks the first week I’ll be in office. We have to have everything ready – signature plates and other things,” Sattgast said. He said that there are several retirements from the Auditor’s Office, and five people are moving to different positions within the state government. “There is a very strong staff currently in he Auditor’s Office. I am looking forward to working with them, as they have proven themselves as an asset to the people of South Dakota.
The Deputy Auditor will be Rik Drewes.
“As far as our progress concerning the transition, I’m pleased to relay that all of the current Secretary of State’s staff will remain onboard, with the exception of two retirements,” said Barnett. “I’m excited that they’ve agreed to join my staff, as their wealth of knowledge and experience will greatly aid in a smooth transition. Jason Lutz, who currently serves as my Deputy State Auditor, will also be joining me and serve as Deputy Secretary of State.”
