Former President, Sioux Falls Public Schools Board of Education
The use of social media during my successful school board campaign was key to the election win. By being very strategic with both the placement and release of ads we got the results we wanted and needed. Ellie made this a very simple yet effective tool for us to use.
Former Mayor of Yankton, South Dakota

Vice President, Sioux Falls Public Schools Board of Education
Working with Ellie was an outstanding experience for our $190 million school bond proposal. The message was well received by the public as evidenced by the overwhelming victory we secured in our bond election (85% yes vote). Through traditional media and social media we were able to tell our story. I would highly recommend Ellie Highstreet for your campaign.
Chair, Vote Yes for Schools - Sioux Falls
In the art of election and politics, Ellie Highstreet strives to make it a science. She studies local election history, identifies supporters, and engages them through the ever-changing social media tools, not to mention the tried-and-true tactics. With her help in a 2018 six-week campaign, our volunteer committee passed South Dakota's largest-ever bond ($190 million) for three new Sioux Falls schools - a high school, middle school, and elementary, plus money for remodeling. And we did it with the highest victory margin in state history: 85.46 percent.
Yankton City Manager
With Ellie’s guidance, a grass-roots community group was able to pass a vote for an aquatics facility by an overwhelming majority. This was a huge step for our community since previous attempts to move forward have failed. Ms. Highstreet led her team with positivity and confidence.
Executive Director, Southeast South Dakota Tourism Association
Ellie has a wealth of experience and expertise in writing press releases and getting them picked up. I have worked with her on numerous projects where her talents were critical in securing the media's attention, including the Dive In Yankton project, the 2021 World Archery Championships, and the Yes for YSD campaign. The projects I worked on with her would have never received attention in the media without her guidance and talents. Ellie is the perfect hire for anyone seeking assistance in copywriting and exposure for projects or campaigns of any size.
President, Sioux Falls Firefighters Association Founder, Step Up for Heroes
Ellie was instrumental during the formative years of our Step Up for Heroes program. While her event planning and fundraising skills undoubtedly helped facilitate our event’s success, it was her willingness to create, coach, and collaborate that helped drive our members into a new Era.

Fundraising Co-Chair, Yankton Youth Soccer Association
When we were planning our fundraising campaign for our new soccer park we knew we needed help. We needed someone to bring a professional approach to the process. We needed someone who could get us organized and give us credibility. We needed someone who had broad connections with the media and others to help get our story out there. Turns out what we needed was Ellie! Ellie brought all of this and more and with her help we raised $2.6 million in less than a year! She is truly outstanding.
