Tea area Republican Isaac Latterell announced Tuesday he is seeking one of two seats for State Representative in District 6. This newly formed district includes Tea, Lennox, Harrisburg and a portion of Sioux Falls.

“I believe our local representatives must work hard to listen to the ideas and concerns of the people they represent,” says Latterell, “That’s why I’ve been meeting every day with residents, community leaders, and educators to learn about their concerns and how I can better serve them.”

Latterell has a background in business finance and now owns and operates Latterell Consulting, helping small businesses across the state solve their technology problems and use the Internet to reach their customers.

“In my business, I work to understand the challenges my clients face and help them design innovative solutions. I am excited to continue this approach as I represent the concerns and values of our district in Pierre, and I encourage anyone to call me directly at 368-1002 or contact me at IsaacLatterell.com”
