About Monae

Hi. My name is Monae Johnson and I am the Republican Nominee for South Dakota Secretary of State.

I have over 8 years’ experience in the South Dakota Secretary of State’s Office, working in every division in the office. I have had the privilege to serve under 2 Secretaries of State, and worked with 3 Governors and 3 Attorney’s General. While in the office, I worked with legislators, lobbyists, Constitutional Officers and the general public.

I was born in Brookings, raised in Rapid City and have lived and worked in Pierre. I am proud to be a 4th generation South Dakotan.

I am the mother of 6 children and grandmother of 4 grandchildren.

As a former small business owner, I know the struggles that you as business owners are now facing.

I have volunteered with many wonderful organizations like Zonta Club of the Black Hills, Women’s Network, Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, Exchange Clubs, Optimist Clubs, and my church.

I am active, energetic, enthusiastic and ready to serve you, the people of South Dakota.
