ATTORNEY GENERAL CANDIDATE JASON RAVNSBORG ENDORSED BY A MAJORITY OF SOUTH DAKOTA’S COUNTY SHERIFFS
Jason Ravnsborg of Yankton, South Dakota, announced today that 40 of the County Sheriffs of South Dakota have endorsed him to be the next Attorney General of South Dakota.
“I am humbled and honored to have earned the endorsements of the majority of the Sheriffs of our state as I seek to become the state’s top law enforcement official,” said Ravnsborg.
“I appreciate how Jason brings a fresh look to the concerns of law enforcement in both rural and urban settings and how he listened to the differences and how, while some programs work in some areas, they do not always work in other parts of our state.” said Lyman County Sheriff Steve Manger.
As the next Attorney General of South Dakota, Ravnsborg believes that law and order starts with the badge-wearing individuals working 24/7 all over our state. Support for law enforcement has to come from both the top and the bottom as officers work tirelessly keeping communities safe, tackling everything from traffic incidents to drug crimes to victim based offenses.
Ravnsborg states, “Law Enforcement Officers deserve our admiration and respect for their many sacrifices, and as Attorney General I will work to get law enforcement the resources they need to make their jobs easier in protecting each and every one of us, every single day.”
“I have seen how tenacious Jason can be in prosecuting cases. He met with me and my Chief Deputy to discuss a recent case and fought hard to send a dangerous sex offender away to prison” said Union County Sheriff Dan Limoges.
“Jason is clearly a hard working individual, with a strong background of leadership, who I know will work tirelessly for law enforcement. I look forward to working with him when he is Attorney General” said Brookings County Sheriff Marty Stanwick.
Ravnsborg vows to continue to seek the support of all law enforcement officials in South Dakota and plans to continue his visits with state, county and city officials across the state to learn what is needed in our communities and to work at developing solutions to these challenges as they are identified.
Jason is an attorney in the law firm of Harmelink, Fox & Ravnsborg in Yankton, South Dakota; a Deputy States Attorney in Union County; a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and a Lieutenant Colonel and Battalion Commander in the United States Army Reserves. Jason aims to bring this leadership, courage and dedication to duty to the office of the Attorney General of South Dakota.
