Sanborn Central students learn the ways of the legislature

By Cassidy Slykhuis and Dana Schelske

Marli Wiese, District 8 Representative, visited Sanborn Central School on Thursday, Oct. 8. During her visit, Wiese discussed what it means to be a legislative page, how bills get passed, and the trials and tribulations of her job. 

Along with the 70 representatives in South Dakota each year, Wiese attends the legislative session from January to March in Pierre. Wiese is the vice-chair of the Health and Human Services Committee and is a member of the Education Committee. 

During the visit to the school, Wiese stressed an important part of being a representative is to listen to those around her so that she can be sure the decisions she is making help those involved as much as possible. Wiese is currently running for her third two-year term as representative. When not at meetings or public speaking events, Wiese is at home in Madison spending time with her family, especially her grandkids.
