LETTER: Vote for Klumb for Dist. 20

To the Editor:

With Lance Carson retiring at the end of this year as your District 20 state representative, it is crucial for the citizens of Aurora, Davison and Jerauld counties to choose a strong advocate to send to Pierre in January.

I am excited that my good friend Joshua Klumb is a candidate to become your next representative. I know he will work hard to earn your trust as a candidate, and work even harder to represent you with excellence in Pierre. Josh knows this district, since Davison County has been his official residence his whole life. Agriculture is an economic engine for District 20, and Josh knows that well since he farms with his father south of Mount Vernon.  Farming teaches a work ethic that Josh will take to Pierre on your behalf. He has gained an unparalleled experience in how the Legislature operates, and the current issues being studied and debated because he has served as a legislative committee secretary for a number of years. That insight and connection puts him steps ahead in representing you in Pierre come January.

I have known Josh for a dozen years and can attest to his integrity, honesty and common-sense approach to government. He believes that South Dakota is a great place to live, and wants to work with you to keep it that way.

We need good, young leaders to step up to the plate. Joshua Klumb is doing that today. I encourage you to support Joshua Klumb for state representative in the June 3 Republican primary election.
