Updated: Dusty Johnson will be at the Brown County Republicans Reagan Lunch this week

January 6, 2014

Updated 1/7/14 – Forgot to include Rounds as a guest in the original post.

On Thursday January 9, 2014, the Brown County Republicans Reagan Lunch will be hosted at Mavericks. The lunch begins at noon and will include special guest Dusty Johnson. Dusty Johnson is the Chief of Staff for Governor Daugaard. For those unfamiliar with Mr Johnson, here is his bio off the sd.gov website:

Dusty JohnsonDustin “Dusty” Johnson serves as Governor Daugaard’s Chief of Staff. Prior to joining the Daugaard Administration, Dusty served on the Public Utilities Commission for six years. Before his 2004 election to the PUC, Dusty worked in Governor Mike Rounds’ administration as a Senior Policy Advisor.

Dusty grew up in Pierre, SD and graduated from Riggs High School in Pierre. He went on to college at The University of South Dakota where he earned his bachelor’s degree. A Truman Scholar, Dusty went on to post-graduate work at the Stene Center at the University of Kansas. There, he earned his Master’s degree of Public Administration.

Dusty and his wife, Jacquelyn, have three sons, Max, Ben and Owen. Dusty enjoys camping, watching college basketball and other sports, and hanging out with his sons.

Also in attendance will be US Senate candidate Mike Rounds (former Governor of South Dakota). From what I understand he is not there as a guess speaker, just attending and meeting with people.

I highly recommend attending these Reagan Lunches hosted by the Brown County Republicans. Each meeting has a guest (such as Dusty) that is more than willing to inform attendees of what exactly they do in Pierre.

P.S. Speaking of Republicans, I would remind everyone Republican gubernatorial candidate Lora Hubel will be at the Aberdeen Pizza Ranch on Tuesday January 7, 2014.

P.P.S. One last reminder: on Tuesday evening there will be a Confronting Common Core event in Aberdeen. This is another opportunity to interact with elected officials.
