“South Dakota’s youngest and very promising legislator.”
Now Dennert own’s a portion of the cattle operations at the family ranch, where he continues to work raising Angus, Maine-Anjou and show cattle, as well as helping with the corn, soybean, and other farming operations.
Dennert first entered public service at the age of 17, where he served as a page in the State Legislature; by 19, he was a Legislative Aid in Pierre; and has served as the Secretary for the Brown County Republican Party. This is all in addition to his community service volunteering for the Brown County Fair, 4-H, and visiting with our elderly, as well as various other activities.
Now, Representative Dennert is the youngest-ever elected legislator on record in South Dakota, being duly elected on November 8, 2016 at the age of 21, after the age requirement was dropped from 25 to 21 in 1998.
After Representative Dennert’s first session in Pierre, he came home to be married to the love of his life, Ashton Bjur in the summer of 2017. Since, they have purchased their first home together and plan to start a family of their own.
