South Dakota Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth (above with Senator George McGovern) represents more than her constituents, she exemplifies a new generation contributing to the future of the Democratic Party. With her academic and legal background of excellence, Stephanie stepped into South Dakota politics, defeated a Republican in a special election, and was reelected by a much larger margin in November 2004. Herseth is a strong advocate for ranchers, farmers, economic opportunities for military veterans and renewable energy. She has worked closely with Native American tribes in South Dakota on telecom and energy issues.
Representative Herseth will be the Keynote Speaker at this year's Utah State Democratic Party's Jefferson Jackson Dinner on May 12, 2006 at the Salt Lake City Center Hilton at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $50.00. For more info call Tka Beard at 801-328-1212, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
