The long-time leader of South Dakota Corn, Lisa Richardson, has resigned. At this time, it is unclear why Richardson has stepped away. The organization has hired former South Dakota Agriculture Secretary Mike Jaspers as an interim director. In a statement, South Dakota Corn Utilization Council Vice President Chad Blindauer says the organization is moving forward with a bigger focus on financial accountability. A request for proposal is being submitted to perform a financial audit. More information is expected once the review process is completed. Richardson, the executive director of 25 years, and Legislative Director Teddi Mueller are no longer listed on the association’s website.
