Sioux Falls man reflects on being guest at State of the Union address

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - While President Trump's State of the Union address being delayed a week was likely an inconvenience for many in Washington -- it resulted once-in-a-lifetime experience for one local man.

Troy Larson is the executive director of the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System.

He was out in Washington, D.C. this week for a national rural water rally to talk with members of Congress about water quality and access issues around the country.

While he was there he got an invite from Sen. Mike Rounds to see the president's postponed State of the Union address.

Larson said while he noticed a lot of division in Washington, he did get something positive out of the experience.

"I was reminded, being there, of what is going well in this country," he said. "There are a lot of things that are going right -- the jobs, economy. There are things that divide us, but surely we can find things that are good, and come together and work together on those items."

Larson also said he was pleased the president focused on infrastructure development in his speech.
