To the Editor:

It's time to put away party and politics and make decisions that influence our lives, all our lives, in the most positive and selfless fashion. One candidate exemplifies the hard-working center of South Dakotans: Sen. Billie Sutton.

I have always identified as independent, however, there is no doubt of my choice for governor in the 2018 election. Mr. Billie Sutton is a true South Dakotan, one whose compassion for all, with measured and thoughtful insight, is exactly what our state and our country needs at this pivotal moment.

Mr. Sutton has been a champion of all South Dakotans time and again. His party affiliation has had no impact on on decision-making and ethical compass to do all he can to make sure every South Dakotan has a level playing field to pursue happiness and success. He is an advocate for our state, an intelligent, tireless and thorough investigator of issues, and a man of unquestioned integrity and dedication.

As a taxpayer and educator, I cannot think of another I would wish to represent my family, students, staff and South Dakota friends than Sen. Billie Sutton. Please review Mr. Sutton's record as a public servant. You will find he represents all of us and very simply does what is best without any thought of party ambition or power.

When contrasting Mr. Sutton with his opponents, which candidate will truly have the courage to stand for South Dakotans without an agenda or power interest? The stranglehold and arrogance of the candidates who feel entitled to this position, will use that arrogance to do as they wish and always have. They care little for what's right for South Dakota only wishing to hang on to their political aspirations. There's only one candidate with a record of sacrifice, humility and reverence for the position of governor. Sen. Billie Sutton.

He will respect the office and those who placed him in that office to serve. I urge you to please put politics aside and support Sen. Sutton for governor. His optimism and devotion to South Dakota will make us all proud to be South Dakotans.
