I HAVE A PASSION TO SERVE OUR STATE
In the State Legislature, my priorities are...
Growing Our State’s Economy
I want to make sure South Dakota remains one of the best-run states and one of the best places to do business. Our taxes are low, our regulation is reasonable, and we budget responsibly.
Improving Our Schools, Tech Colleges, and Universities
Preserving the South Dakota Way of Life
THE STATE CAPITOL IS A SPECIAL PLACE
History of Service
When I was very little, I went to Pierre to visit my grandpa, Henry Poppen, who served as a state senator. He taught me to value our open process and our citizen legislature. He was as conservative as they come, but he never got mad, never took things personally, and was friends with nearly everyone – in both parties. Those are the same values my wife Sara and I work to instill in our children – Henry, Elizabeth, and Madeleine – every day.
