PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard is appointing Dell Rapids Mayor Scott Fiegen to the seat vacated by former Senate Majority Leader Tim Rave.

The governor announced Wednesday that he chose Fiegen to fill the seat until Rave’s term expires next year.

Daugaard says voters have shown their support for Fiegen many times. His first stint as mayor of Dell Rapids was 2001 to 2007, and he stepped back into the role in 2009.

He has also served as a city alderman and currently works as director of software engineering for a Sioux Falls firm.

Fiegen says he’s excited to serve the people of South Dakota as a state senator for District 25, which includes parts of Minnehaha county.

Rave left the Legislature after the 2015 session for work.
