SD Dems to hold emergency meeting
PIERRE, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - The South Dakota Democratic Party will hold an emergency meeting next week to recall Chair Jennifer Slaight-Hansen.
The meeting where the petition for recall will be presented is set for 11 a.m. on Aug. 19 in Pierre.
The party called for Slaight-Hansen’s resignation late last month following allegations that she had violated their constitution, as well as contributed to a hostile work environment, leading to the resignation of Dan Ahlers as executive director.
Initially, Chair Jennifer Slaight-Hansen reported that she did not plan to resign, releasing the following statement:
“I don’t intend to resign. I’m having conversations with Democrats across the state to determine what the best next steps are for the party and for me, personally.”
