I’d heard a couple of rumors from around the Capitol over the past few days, but got solid confirmation on it last night.
As has been long rumored, Current School and Lands Deputy Justin Ohleen is moving on to greener pastures. Moving into his spot, officially, starting tomorrow is fellow Brookings resident Ryan Brunner.
If you aren’t familiar with him, Ryan is quite accomplished for his relatively young age, having been a Brookings City Councilor while still attending SDSU. Ryan’s most recent employment was as a Project Coordinator with the Brookings Economic Development Corporation.
School and Lands Commissioner Jarrod Johnson made a good pick, as Ryan is a solid guy, well deserving of the position. He’d be a potential contender for it as well in 2 years when Jarrod’s term is up.
Congrats to Mr. Brunner, and good luck.
