I’m writing to encourage your vote for Jess Olson, candidate for South Dakota House of Representatives in District 34. Jess has shown leadership, fiscal responsibility and a can-do attitude in her role as the Executive Director at WellFully, a Rapid City nonprofit organization serving children and families. With this skill-set, Jess will serve you well as your representative in Pierre.
When Jess was hired to lead Wellfully, the organization faced significant financial challenges, and was on the brink of closing. She acted promptly and effectively to strengthen finances. Enlisting her board of directors and other volunteers, she successfully effected a turnaround. Today, Wellfully is thriving with expanded programs, more youth served, and more jobs. With this experience, Jess is even more able to support businesses, develop workforce and demonstrate fiscal leadership to benefit District 34 and citizens across South Dakota.
Beyond her work as a nonprofit leader, Jess is a dedicated member of the community, serving on the Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee. She is also a past board chair for the Rapid City Library. I have no doubt that Jess will work hard for you as a representative.
I confidently recommend Jess Olson to be your District 34 Representative, and I encourage you to vote for her on June 5th.
GOP slate is strong in District 34. Each bring a unique, positive perspective to the legislative process that will benefit the residents of South Dakota and Rapid City.
"The residents of District 34 have a great slate of Republican candidates for the state Legislature this year — Jeff Partridge for Senate and Mike Diedrich and Jess Olson for the House of Representatives. I have known Jeff, Mike and Jess for many years. They each are thoughtful, committed and strong community advocates. They each bring a unique, positive perspective to the legislative process that will benefit the residents of South Dakota and Rapid City.
They each also bring a wealth of professional experience, which is always a plus in Pierre. Jeff, Mike and Jess also have demonstrated tremendous commitment to their community as evidenced by the numerous groups and activities in which they are involved.
It gives me great comfort to know that these three will continue in the steps of some of the great people we have elected from District 34, namely Mac McCracken, Ed McLaughlin, Dan Dryden and Craig Tieszen. All three of these candidates will carry on the legacy of these fine legislators, and I am grateful for their willingness to do so. Please vote Partridge for Senate, Diedrich and Olson for the House of Representatives in District 34."
Jess Olson is the kind of leader we need. Someone we can point to and say to our children, 'be like her.' It’s for these reasons and more, I plan to vote for Jess Olson for District 34.
"Now, more than ever, we need leaders with character, courage, and common sense to serve us at all levels of government. Leaders guided by values and driven by a vision for what could and should be. Leaders who are a force for good. This is why I am pleased to support Jess Olson to serve as the District 34 South Dakota state representative. She is exactly the kind of leader and representative we need in Pierre!
Many candidates call themselves a leader, Jess Olson has proven it. She has earned the respect of many community members with the outstanding work she has done as CEO of Wellfully. Many kids (and now, adults) have learned to make better choices and have found purpose in their lives because of this remarkable organization. This doesn’t happen by accident, it takes a great team and visionary leadership. Jess believes Rapid City (and South Dakota) is where possibility lives.
This is why her focus will be on fiscal leadership, supporting businesses, and workforce development. As a District 34 voter, that’s an agenda I can get behind. Jess Olson is the kind of leader we need. Someone we can point to and say to our children, 'be like her.' It’s for these reasons and more, I plan to vote for Jess Olson for District 34."
