ABERDEEN, S.D.—Chris Studer served as a co-chair of the South Dakota Democratic Party’s state convention June 14-16 at Aberdeen. Jennifer Slate-Hansen, a member of the Aberdeen City Council, served as the other co-chair of the convention.
“I was honored to be asked to co-chair this year’s convention,” Studer said. “It was an opportunity to get together with Democrats from across the state of South Dakota to discuss a wide range of issues that affect our state and to talk about how we can make positive change in South Dakota in the months and years to come.”
Studer was responsible for leading the discussion about the party’s platform for the upcoming campaign season ahead of the general election Nov. 6.
“Whether it’s increasing funding for K-12 education, working on true economic development initiatives in South Dakota, or creating more transparency in government, we made our voices heard in the party’s platform by standing up for working families and our hard working teachers and administrators,” Studer said.
Studer is running for the open Senate seat in District 22, which is made up of Beadle and Kingsbury counties.
