BILLION: It's time for new leadership
to win back the Statehouse
SIOUX FALLS - South Dakota Democratic Party Chair Jack Billion
today (Friday) announced he is resigning his state party position
to give the organization a new perspective to winning back the
governor's office for the first time in 31 years.
Billion's resignation makes Vice Chair Cheryl Chapman of Rapid City
the acting head of the state party until its State Central Committee
meets April 25 in Aberdeen for its annual McGovern Day.
Chapman said she is considering running for the position in April, but has not yet decided.
Rounds "goes Blago", chiding
From the Statehouse Alert:
Gov Rounds: "I don't think this legislative body has the coordination
to do a two-thirds vote for a revenue increase." While the Governor
criticizes the Legislature for not wanting to raise sales taxes, the
Democrats have a proposed a plan that balances the budget without
a hefty tax hike.
