Cole Heisey For House District 12
Letter To The Editor

Hi, my name is Cole Heisey, and I’m running for a seat in the South Dakota House of Representatives in District 12.

I have called Sioux Falls my home for over half my life and would be proud to represent you and this great city in the SD Legislature. Sioux Falls and our state are excellent places to raise a family, pursue one’s dreams and prosper. As I’ve grown up here, I’ve learned just how special what we have here really is. That’s why it’s so important to conserve and continue our state’s legacy, while at the same time lead our state forward with integrity so as to thrive and grow responsibly, for the benefit of every citizen. There is so much potential in Sioux Falls and across South Dakota, we just need good people with the right ideas in Pierre and beyond.

Most voters are concerned with the direction of America. I have a vision that will reassure them that South Dakota remains free and prosperous, so you can focus on your family's legacy and enjoy gatherings with your friends, family and neighbors.

As a new member of the State Legislature, I will be a solid conservative voice for the people of my district. To preserve our freedoms and our South Dakotan way of life, we need strong, principled leaders willing to stand up and fight on our behalf. When elected, you can count on me to do just that. Our state, and the people of this district, are worth fighting for. I want future generations to enjoy and appreciate what we have. Among other things, that means educating our youth in the best way possible, supporting our values, and investing in our communities. Our future is bright if we properly foster the next generations and plan accordingly.



Public service has always drawn me. I strongly believe it’s our duty as citizens to better our society, in whatever way we are best suited. That’s what inspired me to run in 2020 and also serve on the boards of the Minnehaha County Republicans and SD Young Republicans, as a precinct committeeman, along with involvement in various other organizations supporting conservative Republican values. I attended O’Gorman during my formative years and later got my degree in political science at the University of South Dakota. I am proud to call SD home, to call many of you friends, and build a career and life here.

It would be an honor, not taken lightly, to serve the people of District 12. I humbly ask for your support, most importantly your vote. Keep an eye out as I’ll be attending events in the area and knocking doors; I would enjoy talking with you. This is an exciting election cycle, and I hope to meet you. Please follow me on social media and/or sign up on my contact list. See you on the campaign trail!
