Jennifer Stalley is a very busy person

In September I did a story about Stalley and her relationship with MMA fighting. We quickly found she had another calling also, animal healthcare.

But Stalley’s job description gets even more detailed after I watched a story today about regulating massage therapists in Sioux Falls. She also has another title;

South Dakota Board of Massage Therapy Executive Secretary

WOW! When does this lady sleep? I commend her for wearing so many hats, but you gotta scratch your head about the relationship between MMA fighting, animal healthcare and massage therapy? Well there really isn’t one.

Like I said, seems like Stalley is a hard worker and good for her, but it also makes you question why the state has to tap the same person (who is a lobbyist) for these multiple positions? Is the state that hard up? Probably, just look at the clowns that worked in the SOS office under Gant.

Don’t lump Stalley in with Gant. Her company Midwest Solutions contracts with a variety of public boards and private companies and non-profits for management and lobbying duties. This saves the state and organizations money because they don’t have to pay for a full-time CEO or staff lobbyist. Part of her job is to be the public face for a number of groups, which is why you see her in the news regularly.

Totally understand her role, I was just making a snark. I just find it funny how some departments of the state have way too many employees, but when it comes to executives of certain divisions, they have them multi-task. The priorities of this state when it comes to budgeting is a cluster.

considering the gear up and EB-5 scandals, you do raise a valid point. how did she get all these contracts, and were they no bid contracts?
