Please welcome MCDP Committee Chair Erik Muckey

Updated: Apr 22

On April 5th, Erik Muckey was elected Chair of the Minnehaha County Democratic Party. Originally from Corsica, SD, Erik has been a resident of the Sioux Falls area for more than five years. He is a graduate of the University of South Dakota with a BBA in Economics. Erik also has a Master of Business Administration from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management Master of Business Administration and a Master of Public Policy from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

Professionally, Erik serves as the CEO of Lost&Found, a Sioux Falls-based nonprofit delivering comprehensive suicide prevention programs, policies, and research services for young adults ages 15 to 34 and their support networks. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Economics at the University of South Dakota.

Erik is a business owner and entrepreneur committed to the growth and support of rural communities throughout the region. He serves as the founder and Managing Partner of PASQ, a rural and tribal economic development consulting agency, as well as a partner of PorchLight, a rural midwestern staffing agency. His career has spanned local to federal government, the nonprofit sector, and the financial services industry, serving in various prepaid and financial technology strategy roles for companies such as Citibank, MetaBank, and Sunrise Banks.

Erik is a proud resident of downtown Sioux Falls and eager to serve the people of Minnehaha County. Welcome to the team.

Traditionally, the Minnehaha County Democratic Party has had members of the opposite sex serving in the chair and vice chair roles. I believe this tradition is important to the diversity of ideas that make our party strong. If there is a woman interested in the vice chair role, please let us know you are willing to serve by emailing

Please welcome MCDP Committee Chair Erik Muckey

Dan Ahlers MCDP Vice Chair
