I have been struck by the tenacity with which Dan Ahlers has stood up for issues of education and children's safety, and I have no doubt that he will champion similar causes in the future.
I endorse Dan Ahlers because of his genuine concern for the safety, education and advancement of all children. I have known Dan for sixteen years. His integrity and commitment to his legislative position have definitely proved to me that he has the passion for what is best for District 25 and all citizens of South Dakota.
