Tim spent several hours Sunday, July 15, at the Brookings Summer Arts Festival, where he met with people interested in his campaign and excited about change and reform.
It was a wonderful day at the 47th annual festival and a good opportunity to connect with South Dakotans, such as longtime Brookings businessman Tom Yseth, a former Brookings school board member, chamber director, Brookings County commissioner and Game, Fish & Parks commissioner.
Tim and Tom strolled through a packed Pioneer Park, where thousands of South Dakotans and guests from other states came for the two-day celebration of art and creativity.
They shook hands and talked and laughed with people enjoying a wonderful summer day in a gorgeous setting.
“I always enjoy coming to Brookings,” Tim told one of the volunteers working at a booth.
He attended SDSU for two years after graduating from high school and has maintained ties with the community over the years, including attending a fundraiser this spring.
Tim’s campaign has taken him across South Dakota, as he has attended summer festivals, walked in parades and met with thousands of people. It’s an opportunity to hear what people are interested in, he said.
“This is one of the best things, getting out and meeting with people,” Tim said. “This is so enjoyable.”
