The Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement non-profit group is holding a meeting in Sioux City tonight to discuss their quest for ensuring the state has clean water.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at First Unitarian Church. It is one of eight statewide meetings in which Iowa CCI will describe the fight for clean water being taken to the judicial system.
Former South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard told Sioux City seniors yesterday that they should do the work if they want to enter public life. Daugaard told a group of seniors at Bishop Heelan High School that a lot of students major in political science in college, but don’t have the practical experience when the time comes to go to work. Daugaard says students need to work for a campaign, be a legislative page or intern for a public official.
“So this is a way that they can help themselves, and position themselves for an opportunity. And also do things that are interesting and meet great people.”
Daugaard’s niece graduates from Bishop Heelan High School next week. Daugaard served as the governor of South Dakota from 2011 to 2019.
