Promote our state, town, and business by always being welcoming to visitors into our area. Help to create good legislation that promotes a high standard of living, good educational standards, and a healthy business environment.
We have done a good job in giving people flexibility for their children's education. They can home school, open enroll, attend private or public schools. We need to continue to work with private schools to help them have special needs services available for all children.
Let them do the jobs they were elected to do.
I think there are too many measures on the ballot that do not reflect our South Dakota values as they are promoted and funded by out of state interests.. Also, I understand that people have the right to petition, but we need to make sure to continue to identify the sources of funding of some of these issues.
I think what we have been doing is adequate.
