State Senate District 24 Candidate
Hi, I am Chad Behn. I was born and raised in the Boone area and went to Boone High school. I played basketball at DMACC and graduated with a two-year degree. Went on to play basketball out of the state and graduated with a Communications degree from Presentation College in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
I returned home to farm and have been doing so for about 18 years. In 2016, I was elected Supervisor in Boone county. We were able to flat line the tax asking for three years and did 2 percent the last year. Boone County is ranked in the bottom 10 percent or better for the lowest county tax rate in the State. I am running to keep improving the tax structure as a whole at the State level. Right now, we tax and incentivize businesses to come to our state. I want to make the tax structure attractive from the start to keep and attract businesses. I also want to continue to support the bold agenda in the State Republican Caucus. It takes an aggressive group to keep a bold agenda, and in doing so, keeps the Republican Senate Majority leader strong.
I also have two boys, ages 16 and 12, in the school system. I want there to be good paying jobs available so that they remain in this great State. This ties in with the tax structure so that good businesses come to our State.
I have been honored to represent Boone County as a Supervisor and want to be able to represent the State in Senate District 24. I am asking for your vote June 2nd. Contact me at Chad Behn for State Senate on Facebook or go to the Boone County website for contact details.
