Gnome’s daughter says she’s quitting the real estate business

Sioux Falls, SD (AP) — South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s daughter was a real estate appraisal on Tuesday after scrutinizing whether her mother used her influence to help her apply for an appraisal license. He said he would quit the business.

Nome’s daughter, Cassidy Peters, accused the legislative investigation and news coverage of the episode in a letter to Secretary of Labor Marcia Hartmann. She also released a document that the legislative committee was seeking a subpoena.Congressmen were in focus Timeline of the gnome conference called last year This included the government agency Peters and key decision makers who moved to reject the application for an upgrade to appraisal certification a few days ago.

“I am writing to you today to express my disappointment and anger that my fame and professional reputation continue to be damaged by questions and misinformation about the appraiser certification program.” Peters wrote to Hartmann in a letter obtained by the Associated Press. KSFY First I reported the contents of the letter.

She told Hartmann that she would submit an appraiser license by the end of the year, adding that “I am angry. I can admit that this has successfully destroyed my business.”

NS Republican-controlled government administration and audit committee Requested a document to confirm what Hartmann told them last month — state regulators qualify Peters as her appraiser before a meeting at the governor’s mansion. We have already decided to give an opportunity. Nome repeated his defense at a later press conference.

“The details of the agreement were discussed and implemented prior to the meeting,” Hartmann told lawmakers at the October meeting.

However, the signed agreement with Peters is dated the week following the July 27, 2020 meeting.

The Governor’s Office referred to the Labor Regulations Bureau for a request for comment. The department then released a letter from Hartmann to lawmakers accusing AP of giving “the impression that he had testified at the hearing that he had agreed with Mr. Peters before the hearing.”

Hartmann wrote in the testimony that AP reporters created an “inaccurate and false story” and that the agreement was signed before the meeting “has never made a remote impression.”

AP does not report that Hartmann said he had signed the agreement before the meeting.she State regulators to parliamentarians in October Peters has sought further education and has created an agreement to allow work samples to be resubmitted to ensure compliance with federal standards.

Hartmann also told lawmakers that he had assumed that Sherry Bren, a former director of the appraiser certification program, was part of the debate to give Peters another opportunity to obtain her license.

However, the agreement with Peters was signed by another state official, Amber Malder, who was Bren’s supervisor. Marder also attended a meeting with the governor last year.

The Commission was set up to request the final approval of the pair of subpoenas from the ranking legislative committee on Wednesday. Hartmann sought to dismiss the subpoena of Peters’ agreement.

In addition to requesting the documents published by Peters, the Commission also wants to summon Bren.

The former director of the program was convened at a meeting in July 2020 and was pressured to retire shortly after Peters received the license in November. Bren filed an ageist complaint, received $ 200,000 from the state, withdrew the complaint and quit his job this year. Nome said the reconciliation had nothing to do with her daughter.
