What’s The Quickest Way To Get A Government Paycheck?

Apparently by working in Journalism.

Nationally former Faux News anchor Tony Snow gets tabbed as the Press Secretary for the Bush Administration and the local pipeline into the political paycheck arena continued yesterday when Sioux Falls Mayor Dave Munson tabbed KELO-TV reporter Jodi Schwan as his Chief of Staff.

Schwan is just the latest in the KELO connection following former employees DeeAnn Tiede, Kenyon Gleason, and Vernon Brown into the local political arena and i'll bet that $98,000 a year made the choice for Schwan a no brainer.

Normally a political staff hiring by the Mayor of Sioux Falls wouldn't be something I would write about but in this case it just so happens that Ms. Schwan is somewhat of an Ohio neighbor of mine having grown up right down I90 from me (though quite a few years later) in Westlake so congratulations Jodi from one transplanted Ohioan to another, and good luck in your new position.
