SD Secretary Of Labor And Regulation To Retire

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Labor and Regulation Secretary Pam Roberts will retire next month after serving in state Cabinet-level positions since 1989.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Roberts was appointed to Cabinet-level jobs by five governors.

Roberts became commissioner of the state Bureau of Personnel in 1989, was chief of operations for Gov. Bill Janklow from 1995 through 2003, and became head of the Labor Department in 2003. She has had an expanded role since 2011, when the agency was renamed the Department of Labor and Regulation and took on added duties.

Roberts will retire on Oct. 10.

Daugaard says Marcia Hultman, the department’s deputy secretary, will serve as interim secretary if necessary until a successor to Roberts is named.
