Kristi Noem has just picked her chief of staff to be:
Noem announced Thursday that Jordan Stoick (STOY’-ick) will manage the process of setting up her offices in South Dakota and Washington, D.C. before assuming the role of chief of staff after Noem is sworn in on Jan. 5.
Stoick, a Mobridge native, is currently vice president of a Washington, D.C. public relations firm.
So, she’s got a native South Dakotan who knows his way around DC. We’ll need to wait and see what this means, but initial reaction is that it is a safe though not exciting pick.
