Oren Lesmeister

The only local contest in the Dewey County Democratic primary election is between incumbent District 28A Representative Oren Lesmeister and challenger Dean Schrempp. The winner of the June 2 primary will have no opposition in the November general election.

The Topic asked the two candidates to share some of their views.

Schrempp

Dean Schrempp, a farmer-rancher from Lantry, has previously served in the S.D. House of Representatives from 1993 to 1994, 1995 to 1996, and 2000 to 2016.

He says he likes being involved in politics. “You have a chance to do some good for your area, and also the whole state,” he said.

CRST to take Noem’s plan into consideration

Responding to a letter from Gov. Kristi Noem proposing a three-part plan for tribal health safety checkpoints, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Chairman Harold Frazier said on May 13 that he appreciates Noem’s concern about preventing the spread of the coronavirus on the reservation and that the tribe “will take (the) three-point plan into consideration.”

The week before, Noem threatened the Cheyenne River and Oglala Sioux tribes with legal action if they refused to remove their checkpoints on state and U.S. highways within 48 hours. That time limit came and went with no suit being filed and the checkpoints remaining in place.

The proposed plan includes no tribal checkpoints on U.S./State highways, checkpoints acceptable on tribal and BIA roads, and reasonable tribal checkpoint accommodations must be available.
