My Plan

I want to look after your tax dollars and chase down every nickel and make sure the accounts balance. Invest conservatively. I’m frugal, I pinch pennies….South Dakota is in good financial shape and I’ll keep it that way. Too many of our young people don’t have financial literacy. I have the background and the experience to keep your money safe.

 The State Treasurer plays an essential role ensuring the solid track record of responsible stewardship of our state’s assets. You can rest assured that as your next State Treasurer, I am committed to continuing the legacy of success through conservative and responsible financial management that puts people first. 

My Priorities



Cyber Security

I think it’s important to remember that cyber threats don’t just exist on an individual level or to businesses. Our state accounts are at risk. We need to make sure we’re working hard to protect those accounts to enhance relationships with our financial institutions and partnerships with other government agencies and the private sector.



unclaimed property

The Treasurer's office has been doing a good job of returning unclaimed property - money owed to people from uncashed checks or closed bank accounts - to the people to whom it belongs. What I want to do is utilize social media and further expand the State Treasurer’s reach into that social platform to help us get that money off of the government books and back right where it belongs in your hands.



Financial wellness

Financial education is one of the roles of the State Treasurer’s office. The office provides the opportunity for those who need it, financial wellness education. I have a background as the chief operating officer for national credit counseling agency. I think it’s important that we provide tools, to those who are searching for them, to help them better understand what it means to properly manage your money.
