Conservative candidate for Delegate to the Republican State Convention.
I, Jill Abourezk, am a life-long South Dakota resident, mother of three adult daughters, a son-in-law, & two grands. I recently retired after 42 years working as a registered nurse. I am a life-long Christ follower, raising my children in this belief system, as well.
I have volunteered, politically, since I was 24 years old, starting with Senator Jim Abdnor’s campaign in the 1980’s. I was raised by a WWII Marine father (two tours of duty, South Pacific) who was the epitome of a conservative patriot, and by my principled mother who believed the same as my father, about our great country.
My parents taught me & my siblings to work hard, that freedom is not free, that liberty must not be taken for granted, and to help others as you are able. Upon these, and other core teachings/beliefs, I have daily, attempted to remain true.
