A big announcement from the SD GOP today on the future direction of the state party.
Justin Rollins Named Political Director
Today the South Dakota Republican Party announced that Justin Rollins will be joining the SDGOP as Political Director.
“We are extremely excited to have Justin on the team,” said Chairman Tim Rave. “He has an exemplary track record and has demonstrated his willingness to do what it takes to win in 2012.”
Rollins grew up in Black Hawk and attended Sturgis Brown High School. Upon graduation, he competed as a member of the football and track teams at Black Hills State University in Spearfish. After his freshman year, Justin transferred to the University of South Dakota where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Psychology, with a minor in Contemporary Media and Journalism.
After completing his degree, Rollins accepted a position working with inner-city youth in Lincoln, Nebraska. In the summer of 2010, Justin returned to South Dakota as campaign manager for Jason Gant for Secretary of State. Since the election, he has served as State Election Coordinator in the Secretary of State’s office, serving as the office’s point-of-contact for campaign finance issues, as well as school and municipalities election law.
Justin Rollins will be a great asset to the SD GOP. He was a workhorse during the 2010 election for Secretary of State Jason Gant’s campaign. One thing I like about this hire is that Rollins campaigned across the state last election and had the opportunity to meet with activists and county party officers and develop relationships in every corner of the state. Rollins has a great personality and will bring a strong work ethic to the position. Congratulations Justin!
