I am a moderate democrat who has lived in South Dakota all my life. My decision to run for the South Dakota House of Representatives for District 11 was not made easily. I am not a career politician. But like many people in our state, I am frustrated with what is happening in Pierre. I want representatives who represent me and all South Dakotans with fair, meaningful, transparent, and financially responsible legislation. This is why I stepped up to run.
I know we will never agree on all issues. However, I understand the importance of teamwork and will work hard to establish strong relationships with everyone in Pierre with honesty and integrity. I promise to listen to those affected by proposed legislation, conduct fair, impartial research and consult experts when needed before I vote on legislation. I am an average South Dakotan who has the willingness and determination to create positive change for the benefit of everyone in our state.
