Janklow Family To Discuss Possible Portrait

pierre, sd

Family members of late former Gov. Bill Janklow are meeting with officials Friday to discuss hanging a portrait of the four-term governor in the State Capitol.

Janklow, who resisted efforts for a Capitol portrait of himself, is the only former South Dakota governor without one.

But Janklow's wife, Mary Dean, and son, Russ, will meet with representatives from the Capitol Complex Restoration and Beautification Commission about the idea.

The portraits are usually paid for by a former governor's cabinet and senior staff members.

Janklow died in January after battling cancer.
