Email SD State Senators

According to the SD Legislative Research Council’s website, one can send email directly to each State Senator and Representative by using the following: sen.lastname@state.sd.us or rep.lastname@state.sd.us. The problem I’ve found is that there are two senators with the same last name – Sutton – and I’ve no clue how the LRC differentiates between the two. But here’s the list I made up using that information and a list of names.

Let these folks know that a boycott of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will have a strong negative impact on businesses in South Dakota – and in turn will mean a drop in state sales tax revenues.

South Dakota State Senators

Gene Abdallah – sen.abdallah@state.sd.us
Stanford M. Adelstein – sen.adelstein@state.sd.us
Jerry Apa – sen.apa@state.sd.us
Julie Bartling – sen.bartling@state.sd.us
Eric H. Bogue – sen.bogue@state.sd.us
Mike Broderick – sen.broderick@state.sd.us
Thomas A. Dempster – sen.dempster@state.sd.us
Jay Duenwald – sen.duenwald@state.sd.us
J.P. Duniphan sen.duniphan@state.sd.us
William F. Earley sen.earley@state.sd.us
Jason M. Gant sen.gant@state.sd.us
Bob Gray sen.gray@state.sd.us
Brock L. Greenfield sen.greenfield@state.sd.us
Tom Hansen sen.hansen@state.sd.us
Gary D. Hanson sen.hanson@state.sd.us
Jim Hundstad sen.hundstad@state.sd.us
Dick Kelly sen.kelly@state.sd.us
Frank J. Kloucek sen.kloucek@state.sd.us
Dave Knudson sen.knudsen@state.sd.us
Gil Koetzle sen.koetzle@state.sd.us
Clarence Kooistra sen.kooistra@state.sd.us
John Koskan sen.koskan@state.sd.us
Jim Lintz sen.lintz@state.sd.us
Royal “Mac” McCracken sen.mccracken@state.sd.us
Kenneth McNenny sen.mcnenny@state.sd.us
Garry A. Moore sen.moore@state.sd.us
William M. Napoli sen.napoli@state.sd.us
Ben Nesselhuf sen.nesselhuf@state.sd.us
Ed Olson sen.olson@state.sd.us
Jim Peterson sen.peterson@state.sd.us
Lee Schoenbeck sen.schoenbeck@state.sd.us
Orville B. Smidt sen.smidt@state.sd.us
Dan Sutton sen.sutton@state.sd.us
Theresa B. Two Bulls sen.twobulls@state.sd.us

Duane Sutton – ??

With luck, I’ll have the Reps list posted soon.

Boycott: Sturgis

Update: (11:00a) Email address for Gov. Rounds: sdgov@gov.state.sd.us

Update: (10:15a) I just learned that Gov. Rounds is up for re-election this year…

From the Sioux Falls Argus Leader:

Republican Sen. Tom Dempster of Sioux Falls said, “This bill ends up being cold, indifferent and as hostile as any great prairie blizzard that this state has ever seen.”

(snip)

Republican Sen. Stan Adelstein of Rapid City had tried to amend the bill to include an exception for abortions for victims of rape. The amendment lost 14-21.

“To require a woman who has been savaged to carry the brutal attack result is a continued savagery unworthy of South Dakota,” he said.

(snip)

House Bill 1215 seeks to make abortion a felony but wouldn’t allow charges to be filed against a doctor who performed the procedure during an attempt to save the life of a pregnant woman. (emphasis mine)

This isn’t just a women’s issue. In the end, this is about the rights of each individual to make medical decisions without government interference. Whether it is about abortion or choosing to end life support, the decision is best left to those directly affected.

But, knowing politicians – the almighty dollar speaks louder than any logical argument. So, be sure to point out that, should this boycott succeed, Sturgis will see a 10-15% drop in attendence. A loss of 50,000 attendees and the potential loss of $35 million dollars just might make them sit up and pay attention.

You can contact the SD legislators by email here. It’s an awkward system, and takes time to get through the list. (Sorry!) Be sure to refer to House Bill 1215 when calling or emailing.

Be polite and courteous. Kill them with kindness, as my mother always says.

I’ll be working to find direct email addresses, so we can send bulk mailings (that BCC feature is very handy!) I’ll also be trying to find phone numbers.

Also, contact Governor Mike Rounds.
Send an email: Go to http://www.state.sd.us/governor/ and click the link.
Phone: (605) 773-3212
Send a postcard: Office of the Governor, 500 E. Capitol Ave, Pierre SD 57501
