A South Dakota Original

Today, Former state Senator James "Jim" Dunn was born in 1927. Jim was in the House from 1971-1972, and was State Senator for Lawrence county from 1973-2000. That's something you'll never see again - a 30 year veteran of the legislature.

Jim's political accomplishments include LRC Executive Board member 1977-1982 and 1985-1990, LRC Executive Board Vice Chairman 1979-1980, LRC Executive Board Chairman 1981-1982, Assistant Majority Leader 1989-1992 and 1995-1998, Assistant Minority Leader 1993-1994, Senior Assistant Majority Leader 1999-2000.

Jim who worked in the 'off season' at Homestake is one of those personalities you never forget. He's West River to the core, and just a good guy.

Happy Birthday to a South Dakota original, the likes of which we will never see again.
