Gov. Daugaard To Appoint Fiegen To District 25 State Senate Seat

fiegenPIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced today that he will appoint Scott Fiegen of Dell Rapids to the vacant seat in the state Senate representing District 25. Fiegen will succeed Sen. Tim Rave, who resigned earlier this year.

“Scott Fiegen is a leader in his community, and the voters of Dell Rapids have expressed their confidence in him many times,” said Gov. Daugaard. “I thank him for taking on this new role as a state senator, and I am confident he will serve District 25 well.”

Fiegen currently serves as the mayor of Dell Rapids. After serving as a city alderman from 1998 to 2001, he served as mayor from 2001 to 2007 and returned to the office in 2009. He works as director of software engineering for Meta Payment Systems in Sioux Falls.

“I am thankful for the confidence Gov. Daugaard has placed in me,” said Fiegen. “I am excited for this new opportunity and look forward to working for the people of District 25 and the state of South Dakota.”

Fiegen and his wife, Teri, have two grown children. They have been actively involved in their community and attend St. Mary Catholic Church in Dell Rapids.

The appointment is effective immediately. Fiegen will serve the remainder of Sen. Rave’s term, which expires after the 2016 general election. District 25 includes north and east Minnehaha County, including the cities of Dell Rapids, Baltic, Garretson, Colton, Lyons, Valley Springs and Rowena. It also includes the area in eastern Sioux Falls near South Sycamore Avenue and East 26th Street.

  1. Two things: another appointee from Dell Rapids…hmmm. AND some people thought it would be unfair to move Bolin to the Senate as he was elected to the House by the people. Guess it is ok, though, to have a mayor elected by the people of Dell Rapids be asked to leave that position to move to the House.
