I am excited to announce my candidacy for the South Dakota House of Representatives - District 11.  I am running because I truly believe SD is a great place to live, work and raise a family.  

But the older I get, the more often I find myself asking “Why doesn’t somebody do something about that?”  I question the intent and rationale behind some of the past proposed legislation.  It is imperative that all government officials possess unquestionable ethics and undisputable integrity if we want fair, equitable and knowledge based decisions and policies.  So, after many conversations and a lot of self reflection, I realized “I am somebody” who can help bring positive change to South Dakota.

In addition to honorable legislators,  we need more relevant and meaningful legislation that addresses real problems in our state.  Our legislative time and money should not be wasted on problems that don’t exist in our state.  South Dakota needs bold, progressive policy changes to protect the rights of everyone and support our diverse communities across our great state.

I know it won’t be easy.  I'm aware of the challenges .  Throughout my life I’ve learned the importance of teamwork.   I will strive to build bipartisan relationships to get things done with honest communication, compromise and common sense.  

I don’t pretend to know everything.  But when necessary, I will consult experts, conduct unbiased research and most importantly listen to the people who are most affected by proposed legislation.  I promise to represent you, District 11, and all South Dakotans with authenticity, transparency and integrity.  Thank you for your support!
