Video: Neighbors, Family, Politicos Eager for Bjorkman Campaign

Tim Bjorkman’s first speech as a Democratic candidate for U.S. House brought out about 170 of Bjorkman’s friends, family, colleagues, and interested political types. Among the Canistota crowd was former legislator Rod Hall from Mitchell:

Susan Decker from Canistota liked what she heard:

…as did Canistota farmer Bo DeKramer:

Denise Kurth came down from Salem to hear the former judge talk politics:

Between school and work, Bjorkman’s son John is looking forward to helping his dad campaign… although John says it will be a while before John himself thinks of running for any office:

Veteran legislator Frank Kloucek had just gotten off the tractor from cutting wheat and hurried up from Scotland to hear Bjorkman’s announcement. Even a snoot full of wheat dust couldn’t keep Kloucek’s exuberance for Bjorkman’s campaign from coming through:

    Frank Kloucek sincerely testifies that Tim Bjorkman is genuine in his desire to represent all South Dakotans. “It doesn’t get any better than that.”

    That a veteran legislator speaks up for a completely new candidate signals that Bjorkman may not be the political neophyte that his absence from previous public policy discussions might suggest.

    Want Tim to know that I would support him if I lived in SoDak. We were his neighbors while I was in grade school in Kimball in the sixties. My dad was the school principal in Kimball when we lived there, and though he passed away six years ago, I know he would support Tim’s views also. Universal health care is the answer, it would alleviate much anxiety across this nation and most likely would allow us to come together as a people.

    Always meant to stop in and see Tim when he was a judge but the timing and distance just didn’t work out.

    Say hello to Joe.
