About John

I’m John Hughes, and I am running for District 13 house. I am an Attorney and Small Business owner and have practiced law the past 40 years in Sioux Falls. I have lived in District 13 for more than 30 years and have established my law practice in the district as well. My wife Beth and I have 3 grown sons, 3 grandsons and a granddaughter on the way.

I was born and raised in Huron. After graduating from SDSU, I went to law school at the University of Nebraska College of Law in Lincoln. After two years practicing with an Omaha law firm, we relocated to South Dakota and settled in Sioux Falls, where we have lived since 1984.

South Dakota is a great place to live because we have a tradition of good people answering the call to public service and protecting our way of life. As your State Representative I look to continue that tradition of keeping South Dakota the best place to raise a family, start a business, and achieve the American Dream.
