Nesselhuf Statement on Redistricting

“I commend the redistricting committee for opening up the redistricting process to constituents across South Dakota, who urged lawmakers to keep their communities together. However, public meetings don’t mean much if legislators ignore the wishes of the public. Today, the concerns of citizens in North Rapid City, Brown County, and Bon Homme County were disregarded, and their right to fair representation lost for the next ten years. Republicans made redistricting a game and won. Unfortunately, it’s the citizens of South Dakota who lost and have to live with the consequences for the next ten years.”

Ben Nesselhuf
Chairman, South Dakota Democratic Party
