Governor Noem spoke Siouxland Initiative Luncheon in Dakota Dunes

DAKOTA DUNENS, S.D.(WNAX)- South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem spoke at the Siouxland Initiative Lunchion in Dakota Dunes Wednesday.

Noem said more companies across America are looking at South Dakota as a place to expand and do business.

Noem says that includes growth in the North Sioux City area, where two large land parcels are being developed and an industrial park is growing.

At the end of her presentation the Governor and Siouxland Chamber of Commerce President Chris McGowan “high fived” each other on an effort to bring an airline corporate headquarters to the area, possibly to use the soon to be vacated Tyson Foods corporate building in Dakota Dunes.

Noem says she also is focused on finding job opportunities for those Tyson employees.

Tyson Foods announced last year they were closing thier office in Dakota Dunes and consolidating operations in their Arkansas headquarters.
