From today's Rapid City Journal:
Elli Schwiesow of Rapid City has announced her candidacy for South Dakota Senate, District 32. In her campaign announcement, Schwiesow quoted Ronald Reagan, stating that, like him, she is "an ordinary citizen with a deep-seated belief that much of what troubles us has been brought about by politicians, and it's high time that more ordinary citizens brought the fresh air of common-sense thinking to bear on these problems.Read it all here from the Vice-Chairman of the South Dakota Republican Party. Elli - congratulations on making it official and best of luck from the SDWC!!
"My campaign is about ideas, honest, common sense, conservative, ethical and compassionate ideas," she said. "I am a conservative Republican. I embrace the principle of lower taxes and less government."
Schwiesow said, "I believe it is possible to improve education by directing more of the existing education dollars into the classroom. If we move from 58.6 percent of our dollars going directly into the classroom to 65 percent, we will put an additional $54 million a year into South Dakota's classrooms, all without a tax increase. "
