Former State Senator Tom Katus was elected last weekend as the Democratic nominee for South Dakota State Treasurer.
I think this is great news. Whoever takes over as treasurer is facing cleaning up after years of mismanagement and cronyism. Katus is a straight talker and a fair guy with friends on both sides of the aisle in Pierre -- so I think he's a great choice to help Gov. Heidepriem (we hope) clean house.
Tom's campaign is starting up - be looking for him. Out here in Robbinsdale, we're certain he will be saying things worth hearing.
