Woksape Tipi (Michelle May)___ Bulletin tid bits......AVAILABLE ON THE LIBRARY WEB PAGE:-The Black Hills Knowledge Network is an online community information service that connects people to local information and ideas. We work with librarians and community organizations to aggregate and organize local news, resources, data and historical archives from a variety of sources. We seek to engage citizens and educate community leaders regarding the value of local information for decision-making and strategic planning, with the goal of enhancing the quality of life in communities. Our 13 partner libraries and communities include: Rapid City, Spearfish, Sturgis, Custer, Deadwood, Lead, Wall, Whitewood, Box Elder, Edgemont, Piedmont, Summerset, and Oglala Lakota College. The Black Hills Knowledge Network also operates the South Dakota Dashboard, a comprehensive source for data and statistics on South Dakota. <><><> NSN Editorial 3/2/16. Important information for candidates and voters. We have some important dates for everyone to remember...... South Dakota’s Primary Election will be held on June 7, 2016. If you intend to run for an office with any of the major parties, you must register by March 29, 2016. If you want to run as an Independent, you have until April 26, 2016 to register. Senator John Thune will be running for re-election in 2016. So far one candidate has announced that he will run against Thune. He is a Democrat from Yankton and his name is Jay Williams; Kristi Noem will also be running and she has one challenger named Paula Hawks who is a Democrat and a State Representative. Senator Mike Rounds will not be up for re-election until 2020. South Dakota has 35 State Senate Members: 8 Democrats, 27 Republicans. The House of Representatives has 70 members; 12 Democrats and 58 Republicans. The length of terms for the House and Senate is 2 years. Governor Dennis Daugaard will not be able to run for office again, but he will be governor until 2018. WE strongly encourage Native Americans to run for office. Whether you win or lose doesn’t matter. Just remember you will have the opportunity to debate all of the incumbent candidates and thus express the point of view of all Native Americans. This year is also an election year on the Pine Ridge Reservation. As the candidates announce to run we will publish their names and give you a little background on each candidate. Also we need not remind you that it is a national election year for the President of the United States. The eventual candidates are now actively participating in the Primary Elections and Caucus’s across America.
