Frerichs announces candidacy for District 1 State Senate

WILMOT State Representative Jason Frerichs announces today that he will seek the Democrat nomination for the State Senate seat in Legislative District 1. Frerichs is completing his first term as a member of the State House of Representatives where he provides leadership to the Democrat Caucus as a Minority Whip.

I am proud of the quality of people who come from Northeast South Dakota and serve in Pierre; Senator Gary Hanson has recently informed me that he will not be seeking a fourth term in the Senate, states Frerichs. District 1 includes the counties of Day, Marshall, and Roberts.

Next year due to the departure of many veteran Senators, the State Senate will need new leadership on issues important to agriculture, renewable energy, and education. Representative Frerichs continues, I feel that I can utilize my abilities to work with both sides of the aisle to achieve results and respect for the people in our rural communities.

Frerichs actively farms with his family near Wilmot where he raises corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa and manages a beef cow/calf operation. Serving as an agriculture instructor at Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown ensures that Frerichs stays in touch with the current demands of relevant education.

Representative Frerichs is known for his work on updating the high school graduation requirements with passage of a bill that ensures a level playing field for career and technical education. Frerichs has worked in a bi-partisan manner with Senators from the Majority Party cosponsoring legislation.
