Press Release: Senator Billie Sutton Announces Listening Tour for a Stronger South Dakota


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – When Senator Billie Sutton, investment executive, rancher, and fifth generation South Dakotan from Burke, announced his campaign for Governor of South Dakota in May, he vowed to travel the state to talk with fellow South Dakotans about the issues facing our state’s people and local communities.

Today Senator Sutton announced that he will host a series of town halls across South Dakota to listen to the concerns of the citizens.

Senator Billie Sutton said,

“In politics today, it seems like most politicians do too much talking and not enough listening. My campaign for Governor will be about the people. I want to hear from everyday South Dakotans about the issues that matter most to them so I can use common sense to address the concerns and priorities of our people.”

The first stop of the Sutton for South Dakota Governor “Listening Tour: For a Stronger South Dakota” will be in Sioux Falls on Monday, October 2 from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM at the Augustana University Froiland Science Center, Room 113B.

The event is free and open to the public.

The Sutton for South Dakota “Listening Tour: For a Stronger South Dakota” will make additional stops in Brookings, Rapid City, Spearfish, Vermillion, Aberdeen, and Mission. The details of these events will be announced at a later date.
