State Rep. Dan Dryden Died

DrydenPIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota State Rep. Dan Dryden of Rapid City passed away this morning. Dryden had represented District 34 in the State House of Representatives since 2011 and was the vice chair of the House Appropriations Committee.

“South Dakota has lost a true public servant. Dan Dryden was respected in the Legislature for his steady, common-sense approach,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard. “He was committed to sound financial management, and was an expert in school finance. Like many others, I admired Dan’s dedication to serving our state, even as he quietly fought his battle with cancer. Linda and I offer our condolences to Judy, the Dryden family and Dan’s many friends at this difficult time.”

Gov. Daugaard will order flags to fly at half-staff statewide in honor of Rep. Dryden on the day of his funeral, which has yet to be determined.
