LETTER: Government shouldn’t work for the wealthy

To the Editor:

It is just plain bad when government is run by the wealthy. Government for the wealthy is for the people of Wall Street, Silicon Valley and Hollywood, and last time I looked, none of those places is in South Dakota.

Our state needs government that gives small business and hard-working people a fair shot. In order to have a chance of getting that kind of government, we have to elect people who owe their positions to our votes, not rich people’s dollars.

That is as best as I can say it. That is what I heard Rick Weiland say the other day, and he is spot on.
