Fighting for the Rights of Others, Education and Hard Work

Let's Keep Fighting to Change Pierre's Priorities

You first elected Marc Feinstein to the House of Representatives to help change the focus of Pierre's priorities.  Now you can vote to re-elect Marc again on November 6th and return him to Pierre to keep fighting for you. 

Marc is a native South Dakotan who knows what it is like to run a family business.  He is married to Nancy and together they have six children: Jennifer, Scott, Rachel, James, Alissa and Zach and four grandchildren: Joe, Stella, Tess, and Cole.  An Aberdeen native, Marc owned and managed Feinstein's Ready-to-Wear, a women’s and children’s clothing store his grandfather founded in 1924. An avid wrestler, Marc lettered at Aberdeen Central High School and at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, where he earned his A.B. in Economics and played in the infamous Stanford Band.

Marc is a graduate of the University of South Dakota School of Law and received an advanced degree in tax law from the University of Florida College of Law.

Since 1995 he has been practicing law concentrating a large part of his practice in Elder Law, helping our senior South Dakotans and disabled citizens with Medicaid eligibility planning, disability planning, wills, powers of attorney, and supplemental or special needs trusts along with tax and business planning. His law practice also includes extensive business and tax planning, tax controversy and entity formation.

He is the former Chair of the State Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights,  former Legal Counsel for the South Dakota Chapter of March of Dimes, and past board member of the South Dakota Alzheimer's Association. Marc is past President of the Su Fu Du Drumline organization and past President of Mt. Zion Temple in Sioux Falls.

"I am not afraid of rolling up my sleeves and doing the hard work," Feinstein says. "From the wrestling mat to behind the front desk at Feinstein's Ready to Wear to helping my clients to serving as the eyes and ears of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, I know that there is no replacement for it. I bring that same work ethic to the legislature."

Some of Marc's major campaign issues include:

  • Aren't you tired of hearing that South Dakota keeps falling further behind our neighboring states in teacher pay . . . So am I . . .It's time to address the problem before our best and brightest teachers leave and cross the border.  We can start by making the investment in our children our number one priority in Pierre and adequately fund education.  Only then can we begin to catch up to our neighboring states.  

  • Getting state government back to solving citizens' problems. "South Dakotans are a good, moral people who don't need the legislature to make moral choices for them. We need to get the legislature back on track, working on helping our citizens with their real concerns, helping the economy and small businesses grow and create good paying jobs."
  • I will continue working hard for alternative energy sources and incentives to help small business.  
  • On Accountable and Open government,  "I am working for you being a watchdog for your tax dollars in Pierre.  We need to open up your government to make sure you are able to get the information you want.  No more hide and seek".
