McGowan informed the County Commission he will be taking more time off in an email on Tuesday;
I just want to give you a head’s up that I’m having a complete knee replacement this Friday morning. Â I hope to be back part time the following Monday. Â I need to drive to Pierre on Tuesday, the 22nd, for a Controlled Substance State Task Force meeting. Â I plan to be back full-time on Wednesday the 23rd. Â I have shared this with my office and I’m ok with it being shared with the public if any questions are asked.
Aaron F. McGowan, Minnehaha County State’s Attorney
So he decided to tell the Commission and the public he will be gone for knee surgery for about two days but can’t tell them why he was gone for almost two months? WOW!
