Kristi Noem has decided to make her two most recent interim cabinet appointments permanent. Joel Jundt will remain Secretary of Transportation with Kevin Robling Secretary of Game, Fish, and Parks. Noem says both had great experience when they took the interim posts and have proven to be up to the challenge. She says Robling has a great understanding of the state’s natural resource and conservation priorities while Jundt has dedicated his life to promoting transportation access in South Dakota and has proven himself as a leader in the industry.
