PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — A Pierre native will take over as Governor Kristi Noem’s chief of staff.
On Thursday, Gov. Noem’s office announced Aaron Scheibe will take over the role on May 1. He previously worked in Gov. Noem’s office in 2019 as a senior policy advisor and worked in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development from 2014-19.
