Trusting in South Dakota

Deb Peters

Welcome to! Hi, I am Deb Peters, the South Dakota State Senator for District 9.

I have been the State Senator in District 9 for the past 4 years and previously, the State Representative for 6 years. I encourage you to browse my web site to find out a little bit more about me, my family and the work I have been doing since elected 10 short years ago.

It has been an honor to serve District 9 as their State Senator and State Representative for the past 10 years! I look forward to continuing my service in the future!

In the Senate, I currently serve as the Chair of the Appropriations Committee and have previously served as the Vice-Chair of Government Operations & Audit Committee. Previously in the House, I served as Chair of Government Operations & Audit in addition to spending 4 years on the Appropriations Committee and 2 years on the Judiciary and Taxation Committees.

I have been extremely effective in utilizing my experience as a Certified Public Accountant to ensure the State of South Dakota is maximizing all our resources while balancing the budget and mandating that Government live within its means.

As you know, South Dakota is a GREAT place to live and raise a family. The main reason I want to continue serving in the South Dakota Legislature is to help ensure our incredible South Dakota way of life continues for our children through fiscally sound decisions, promoting and improving our education system and taking care of our families.
