District 20 legislative candidates show a great disparity on how they raised money — and how much they raised — to run for office this year.
The pre-election filing deadline for campaign finance reports was Oct. 22.
State Sen. Mike Vehle, R-Mitchell, raised nearly $15,000, with almost half of that coming from political action committees (PACs).
South Dakota’s lone congresswoman, locked in a tight political battle, walks into a downtown jewelry store to shake some hands and seek some votes.
The veteran Democratic politician is carrying a secret weapon with her: Zachary, her 2-year-old son.
District 19’s state legislative races include a pair of lawmakers trying to switch chambers because of term limits.
State Sen. Frank Kloucek, D-Scotland, is seeking a seat in the state House, facing former state Rep. Ed Van Gerpen, a Republican from Avon; Democrat Kyle Schoenfish, of Scotland; and independent Lonnie Mayer, of Tripp. State Rep. Bill Van Gerpen, of Tyndall, did not run for re-election. The top-two voter getters will win the two House seats.
In the Senate race, state Rep. Jim Putnam, R-Armour, is challenged by Democrat Glennis “Glenny” Stern, of Armour, a former Douglas County commissioner.
The off-sale of liquor is a moral issue, according to an opponent of the city ordinance that Mitchell voters will consider Nov. 2.
An advocate of the ordinance, meanwhile, says it’s simply a matter of properly marketing Mitchell as a regional trading center.
‘Trees’ initiative has damaging wording
To the Editor:
I read with interest a letter to the editor written by former Mayor Alice Claggett, and it’s quite obvious she has not read the initiative that will be on the ballot (Nov. 2 for Mitchell voters). If she had, she is not telling the general public the consequences should this ballot measure pass.
