A former University of South Dakota law professor announced Friday that he plans to run for governor as an independent candidate.
Mike Myers taught health care law and elder law at USD for 23 years. He also worked in the early 1960s for theÂ Argus LeaderÂ and theÂ Sioux City Journal.
But it’s in health care where Myers has his most significant experience. He was CEO of Mayo-St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minn., and an executive with other hospitals.
Myers has been an outspoken critic of the vertically integrated health systems reflected by Sanford Health and Avera McKennan, which he called â€œoligopolies.â€ And he said that health care and criticism of â€œcorporate medicineâ€ will be the crux of his campaign.

Sanford’s whereabouts were unaccounted for Monday when he stepped out of the public eye following a bruising session with the state Legislature. Even his wife, Jenny, said she did not know where he was, The Associated Press reported, according to The State newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina.
State Sen. Jake Knotts, a fellow Republican and adversary of Sanford, told CNN that South Carolina law enforcement officials informed him Saturday that the governor had taken a South Carolina Law Enforcement Division vehicle on Thursday and had not yet returned.
“I found out that he was taking frequent trips at odd times of the night in a SLED car with no security,” Knotts said. “He would be driving. I got wind that he had taken another one of these types of capers last Thursday, and that nobody knew who he was with.
Sure it wasn’t Billy Bob Janks?
State Senate Minority Leader John Land, a Democrat, accused Sanford of engaging in “erratic” behavior.
Well, he would fit right in in Pierre. Isn’t it strange how he resembles Jerry Apa . . .
