SD Secretary Of Labor And Regulation To Retire



Bookmark and Share

Governor Dennis Daugaard announced on Thursday that Pam Roberts, Secretary of Labor and Regulation, will retire next month.

Roberts is the longest-tenured member of the Governor’s cabinet. Five different governors appointed Roberts to cabinet-level roles beginning in 1989.

Roberts joined the administration of Gov. Bill Janklow in 1979, first as an executive policy analyst and then as a special assistant to the governor. She stayed on in the office of Governor George S. Mickelson, who appointed her as Commissioner of the Bureau of Personnel in 1989. Roberts continued as Commissioner in the administration of Governor Walter Dale Miller. From 1995 until 2003, Roberts served as Governor Janklow’s chief of operations. Governor Mike Rounds appointed Roberts as Secretary of Labor in 2003, and she took on an expanded role as Secretary of Labor and Regulation in the Daugaard Administration beginning in 2011.

Roberts’ last day as Secretary will be October 10th.

The Governor has named Marcia Hultman, the department’s deputy secretary, to serve as interim Secretary, if necessary, until a new Secretary is named.
