South Dakota’s Secretary of Transportation will be retiring in November, according to a press release from Gov. Kristi Noem’s office.
Darin Bergquist was appointed to the position by former Gov. Mike Rounds in 2007 and remained in the position through the administrations of both Dennis Daugaard and Noem.
“Darin has been a tremendous servant to the people of South Dakota for over 20 years, including 13 years as Secretary of Transportation, and his service will be greatly missed,” said Noem in the release. “He’s helped our state navigate countless challenges over the years. We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
Bergquist said the decision to retire was “not an easy one.”
“I’ve been extremely blessed in my career to have had the opportunity to serve as a member of cabinet for three different governors over the last 13 years,” Bergquist said in the news release. “I will miss the department and all the outstanding people that I’ve had the chance to work with throughout my career. However, I am also looking forward to the next chapter in my life and what it may have in store for me.”
