Maybe instead of paying out-of-state Republican consultants to search for new staff, Governor Noem should just give that money to her own staff to keep them from quitting. Austin Goss reports more staff churn in the Governor’s office:
Caroline Thorman, Noem’s Policy Advisor and Federal Liason, moved on from the office sometime on May 17th.
Julie Muldoon, a former Director of Coalitions and Policy Advisor, moved on from the office May 28th. Muldoon will become the Vice President of Public Affairs at Finseca.
Thorman had only served in her role since October of 2020, replacing Noem’s daughter after she departed a few months before [Austin Goss, “Noem’s Office Sees Two More Staff Departures,” KSFY, 2021.06.07].
Goss notes that Finseca is the same financial security firm that pulled Maggie Seidel away from Team Noem in April. Funny: Seidel was going to be Vice President of Public Affairs and Marketing, while Muldoon is going to be Vice President of Public Affairs. Finseca must have enough public affairs for two vice presidents.
