Noem's $492,000 Fence Going Up; While She Gets Published In WSJ

At the same time Democratic elected officials in Michigan face public backlash for imposing mask mandates and stay-at-home-orders — and accusations of rigging the election against President Donald Trump — Gov. Kristi Noem believes a $492,000 fence should keep potential threats away from the South Dakota Governor’s Mansion in Pierre.

Noem is due back in Pierre Tuesday to deliver a speech concerning the South Dakota budget at 1 p.m. in the House of Representatives Chamber at the State Capitol. On Monday, several construction workers kept busy pouring concrete and performing other duties toward completion of the fence at the mansion, located at 119 N. Washington Ave.

Noem has become something of a folk hero in conservative political circles throughout the nation for her strident opposition to mask mandates and stay-at-home orders. This comes as deaths attributed to COVID-19 in South Dakota outpace coronavirus fatalities for several states with more people, including Oregon, West Virginia and Utah.

“In the coming weeks, governors across the country will give speeches outlining their budget proposals. Following months of economic lockdowns, many of my peers are likely not looking forward to these addresses. In South Dakota, we forged a different path,” Noem stated via Twitter late Monday, while retweeting an op-ed she wrote that is published in The Wall Street Journal.
