"I endorse my good friend, Mike Derby for State Representative." 
–Dennis Daugaard

Dear Friends,


It is my pleasure to ask for your support and vote for Mike Derby for State Representative in District 34.


I have known Mike for over 20 years, since the time we served together in Pierre, I was in the State Senate and he was a State Representative serving on the Appropriations Committee. Mike has been a tireless advocate over the years for the Black Hills regarding Ellsworth Air Force Base, tourism and economic development.


His Appropriations experience will prove to be a big advantage for the State of South Dakota as we navigate through these challenging times. I like Mike and I hope you do also. Please join me in supporting him. 


Dennis Daugaard

Longtime friend, formerly of Rapid City, Robert A. Prentice says:

"Knowing Mike Derby for over 30 years has been an honor. I wish I lived in District 34 so I could vote for him. Citizens in District 34 need to know of Mike’s heart for his community. He has a history of giving to the community in a vast number of organizations he has been actively involved with over the decades. Mike is a man of great character, who will represent District 34 once again with integrity and honor, fairness, and passion. VOTE for Mike Derby."

Let's keep the momentum going.
Vote for Mike Derby in South Dakota’s June 4, 2024 Primary Election.
