Rounds Announces Staff Changes in Northeast South Dakota
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today announced the promotion of Josh Haeder to Regional Director in Northeast South Dakota. Additionally, Katie Murray, a Constituent Services Representative, is relocating to Brookings and will be based out of Rounds’ Sioux Falls office.
“Josh knows South Dakota, particularly the James River Valley,” said Rounds. “He has excelled by focusing on developing strong relationships with residents and communities throughout the region. Some of the best legislative efforts start at the local level. Josh understands the big picture and has been critical in that effort.”
Haeder has served as Senior Field Manager since January 2015. Haeder will continue to focus on constituent services and outreach in the James River Valley. He is based out of Huron with a satellite office in Aberdeen. Prior to joining Senator Rounds’ office, Haeder was the Chief Operating Officer of a credit counseling agency. His past experience also includes business and ag banking.
“Katie is a lifelong South Dakotan with a passion for serving and helping others,” said Rounds. “She has been an asset to my team since the day I took office. In the past 20 months, she has gained valuable knowledge by helping South Dakotans who may be having trouble with a federal agency. I look forward to having a stronger presence in the Brookings area as she and her husband relocate.”
Katie has served as a Constituent Services Representative in Rounds’ Rapid City office since January 2015. She is a graduate of Black Hills State University.
