State Senator Shantel Krebs, James Power, who wants to be a circuit judge, and Troy Larson of the Lewis and Clark Rural Water System are our “professors” today(Tuesday) during Viewpoint University.

In South Dakota most of our circuit judges are appointed by the Governor. Those judges serve eight(8) years and then must face the voters to be retained. In the second circuit serving Minnehaha and Lincoln Counties, two judges are retiring at the end of their eight years, which opens up the opportunity for US to select judges to replace them. A rare occurrence in our state.  James Power, a local attorney is circulating petitions to get on the ballot. He will be with us to discuss the nuances and challenges of running to be a judge, when the law prevents candidates from setting out specific positions on issues.

Troy Larson, with the Lewis and Clark Rural Water System, will update us on the money which may be available as a result of the recent compromise budget bill approved by Congress. The Feds have NOT lived up to their promises to fund their share of the project. Money, like water during our last drought, has dried up.

Senator Shantel Krebs from district 10, is the Chair of the Senate Ag and Natural Resources Committee. She is also on the Transportation and Health and Human Services Committees. All three committees are dealing with interesting issues.

Viewpoint University today(Tuesday) at four(4) pm.
