Johnson calls career shift a chance to better serve state
Published 11/23/2010, The Daily Republic
Dusty Johnson said he has chosen to take his career in public service in another direction by accepting the post as chief of staff for Gov.-elect Dennis Daugaard.
“This move is a very clear indication that my political aspirations are going to take a back seat,” Johnson said in a telephone interview Monday with The Daily Republic.
“Chief of staff is generally not a springboard to any kind of political position,” he said. “A good chief of staff makes sure the governor gets the glory.”
