Gov. Noem just gave her daughter and son-in-law raises on taxpayers’ money.
Meanwhile, she just denied teachers a raise, she claims because of lack of taxes.
Three years ago the people of South Dakota agreed to an increase in our sales taxes for the first time since 1969 “for the purpose of increasing education funding.” How does this governor expect to get away with this? She gave these state employees a big raise but nothing for teachers. The people did not agree to this tax increase to give anyone else but teachers a raise.
It’s time to think about finding someone to replace this governor with someone who cares about the laws we enact. I believe that we elected the wrong person to lead us.
