The executive director of the South Dakota Democratic Party is leaving for a position in the Democratic National Committee.
Sam Parkinson is the Western Regional Representative by the Association of State Democratic Committees.
Thursday is his last day.
In his new role, Parkinson will work with state parties in the western region of the United States. He says his new role will help coordinate these states by helping them grow through fundraising, messaging and getting elected.
Parkinson says he’ll bring a South Dakota brand of Democrat to Washington DC.
