I am a strong proponent of public education.  I believe in, and will fight for, affordable education options to ensure all South Dakotans have the option to receive the education they deserve.

Veterans Affairs

As a medically retired U.S. Army Paratrooper, I want to protect veteran’s rights and ensure our troops receive the best care for serving their country.


I understand that equality is a right for all South Dakotans and that it must be protected under the law to safeguard our standard of living.

Hollowing Out the Middle: The Rural Brain Drain and What It Means for America

I read this book a couple years back while at South Dakota State University. This book describes the problem of “brain drain” in rural America. This book has been a tremendous resource for me, as well as an eye-opener regarding the damage we do to our state when we push our best and brightest students to move elsewhere. If you would like some insight regarding how South Dakota can grow our state’s economy and what we need to do from loosing our intellectual capital on an annual basis, I strongly recommend this book.
