PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota’s secretary of Social Services is quitting just months after being appointed.
Gov. Kristi Noem announced Wednesday that Greg DeSautel is resigning effective May 22. No reason was given and neither the governor’s office nor DeSautel immediately responded to messages.
Noem announced DeSautel’s appointment in January. He was working at the time as an ear, nose and throat doctor at Sanford Health, and had long taught medicine at the University of South Dakota.
DeSautel was overseeing an agency with a budget of about $43.5 million.
