It’s been eight months since our congresswoman was sworn in and still we have not heard what Kristi Noem’s plans are for a state director. Several people have been asked, and none of them have accepted. (mostly because of the level of pay or a different career path)
Has anyone heard whether anything regarding the possibility of a state director for Noem is in the works? Have they decided that they do not need one?
Noem has some very capable people working for her, and I have to wonder why she hasn’t just asked one of them to step up and take on the position. A couple were even with her early in the primary process.
If you get a chance to visit with her or one of her staffers, give us the scoop. Ocassionally I’ll hear rumblings, but those folks have given a credible reason for not accepting the offer.
This has been a puzzling conversation piece for quite a while now, and I would think as she approaches her first reelection she would want a state director in place.
