We face many complex problems in South Dakota that do not have simple answers.

am Dan Ahlers, your state senator for District 25. Thank you for visiting my website. This November, I am running for re-election to the state senate.

Since graduating from Augustana College with a degree in government and international affairs, I have dedicated my time toward making my community and state a better place to live. I have lived in Dell Rapids for 26 years, and I currently own two small businesses in the town. I married my high school sweetheart, Amy, and we have a three-year-old son, Jackson.

I am involved in many community organizations. I also have served as your state representative from 2006 to 2008 and your state senator from 2008 to 2010. My interest in making South Dakota the best place to live has prompted me to run again for the State Senate.

In the coming months, I will be traveling throughout my district, meeting people, and listening to their concerns. I look forward to talking with you on the campaign trail.
