Whose Views Drive SD News?

A Win's a Win. Let's stack win upon win. Fun Fact: Most daily newspapers in South Dakota are owned by corporations OUTSIDE of South Dakota. Maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe.

Trickle UP!

Some things that seem out of reach are actually right there in your hand, and all you have to do is close your fingers around them. It might involve getting your friends, neighbors, and like-minded strangers to help you do it.


Here are the results of the town council election that took place April 12 in the little (600 people) town of Jefferson, SD.


LeFleur/Werner race: LeFleur won by 3 votes.


Rigg/Schaeffer race: Rigg unseated the 26-year incumbent by 4 votes.


Casper/Whitlock race: Casper unseated the 6-year incumbent by 3 votes.


The three winners and Werner had never sought public office before.


Take home: Every Vote Matters. Incumbents Can Be Defeated.
