Matt Wagner

VOLGA — Matt Wagner of rural Volga has announced his candidacy for District 8 in the South Dakota House of Representatives. The district serves rural Brookings, Kingsbury, Lake, and Miner counties. 

“As a conservative Republican my values are rooted in faith, family, and freedom,” said Wagner. “I am running for District 8 House to be an ambassador for less government and more liberty. I stand for life, family, the second amendment, quality education, free market, and less taxes.”  

Wagner formerly served as a school board member for Volga Christian School and a school board member for Sioux Valley Public Schools, and currently serves on the Oslo Township Board as clerk.  

Wagner has strong agricultural ties to the district, growing up on a farm south of Volga.

He attended Sioux Valley Schools in Volga and graduated from SDSU.
