Christine Erickson Resigns From State House

Christine Erickson Resigns From State House

State Representative Christine Erickson (R-Sioux Falls) resigned from the South Dakota State House of Representatives, effective Tuesday, May 20.

Erickson, a Republican who represented District 11, had declined to run for re-election to the state House this year, and was elected to an at-large seat on the Sioux Falls City Council last month.

The vacancy will be filled by gubernatorial appointment effective through the end of 2014. The appointment does not include service in the 2015 Legislative Session, as the 2014 general election will select state representatives prior to the next session. The appointee could, however, serve on interim committees and would represent the district in the unlikely event of a special legislative session this year.

The public are invited to submit recommendations to the governor's office. For more information, or to submit a nomination, call Patrick Weber at 605-773-5999. Nominations should include the candidate's name, current address, telephone number and relevant background information.

District 11 includes areas of western Sioux Falls near Roosevelt High School, as well as rural areas to the west of Sioux Falls.
