The Power of We.

Late in 2021, three people had coffee in Sioux Falls and talked about the insane political scene in Washington and South Dakota. Two weeks later, there were four. Then dozens as we continued to grow giving people an opportunity to voice their frustrations about the extremist agendas that seem to be advancing in politics.

By the summer of 2022, we decided to stop talking and take action. We named ourselves Change Agents of South Dakota because we believe the majority of our state wants serious changes to the tone and actions of our elected officials. Our goal is to keep the extremists out and help elect moderate, thoughtful, responsible candidates into office. We are not partisan. There are Independents, Republicans, and Democrats.

While the situation in Washington seems impossible to fix, with your help, we can make positive changes in South Dakota. It takes electing reasonable people who want to serve us all and holding elected officials accountable for their extremist language and actions. We want to make that a reality to the benefit of ALL South Dakotans! I hope you will join us in making our goals a reality.

Ironic isn’t it?

Harrison Ford(aka Indiana Jones) and President Joe Biden are the same age.

Stories on Ford promote his youthfulness.

Stories on Biden the opposite……..
