We had great turnout on Saturday in the SD51 convention. It was wonderful to have a chance to talk with so many supporters and delegates at Dakota Hills. At the convention I was honored to be endorsed by unanimous acclimation by the delegates from house district 51A.
We also had a few candidates and familiar faces at our convention. Thanks for stopping by, everyone!

I’m looking forward to a great campaign. Onward to victory in November!
Tomorrow, Thursday, March 1, at 7:00 pm we’re having an informal organizational meeting for the campaign. If you’re interested in getting involved to volunteer, let me know. My contact information, as always, is in the contact tab. Give me a call and I’ll give you details. There’s no better time to get involved than early!
Also, I’m looking forward to seeing all of Senate District 51’s delegates at the Saturday, March 3, convention. It has been wonderful getting to know everyone in these early stages of the campaign so far, and I look forward to another opportunity to see you face to face. There’s no better way to get to know what issues are most important to our community than getting together to discuss them, so thank you all for signing up to be delegates and make your voices heard.
Stay tuned for more updates as the campaign progresses.
