Monae for SD Secretary of State



Hi. My name is Monae Johnson and I am a candidate for the 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 3 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.

The Secretary of State’s Office is the filing agency for the State of South Dakota. We are also in charge of Elections across the state of South Dakota.

Election Integrity are the two words that I want you to remember when you see or hear my name, Monae Johnson.

I am against voter fraud, online voting and online voter registration.

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 been a life member of the NRA since I was 18 years old and in 2007 I became a Endowment member of the NRA. I love to hunt and fish.  In fact, 20 years ago I bagged a 6×6 bull elk in the Black Hills of South Dakota on opening day. I am also a state trapshooting champion.

I am a life member of the VFW Auxiliary Post 1273 in Rapid City.

My father was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam and then retired at Ellsworth Air Force Base as a Lt. Colonel.  One of my sons graduated from the United State Military Academy and was an Army Ranger who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Military families are near and dear to my heart.

I have served as the President of Cen-Kota Republican Women, President of Meade County Republican Women and was the 1st Vice President of the South Dakota Federation of Republican Women.  I was the West River/South Dakota President of Aglow International and the South Dakota Area President of Aglow International.

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.
