-Miranda Basye


Sioux Falls has been kind to me. Sioux Falls continues to show me integrity, respect, and teamwork. With your help, I’d like to show that same kindness to the rest of this city and all those who choose to call it home now and in the future.


Born and raised as the oldest child of Northeastern Sioux Falls small, blue-collar business owners, Miranda grew up intimately knowing resiliency, grit, and independence. Miranda dreams big, thinks positive, and works hard.

Living her early days on North Cliff Avenue and eventually near Renner and into Brandon, Miranda experienced first hand the growth and development of the northernmost parts of Sioux Falls. Attending college at the University of Sioux Falls where she studied Media and Spanish in the honors program while playing softball for the Cougars increased her understanding of the city's connectivity to the core business districts and interactions with other parts of the city.

Today, Miranda and her husband, a middle school special education teacher, enjoy life in NE Sioux Falls with their two German Shorthaired Pointers.

Issues & Platform


I aspire for all residents to feel safe just like I did when I was that little girl waiting for the school bus. Safe when we’re traveling through the city in our cars and on public transportation. Safe when we’re enjoying our beautiful parks system and expanding trails! And, safe when voicing our ideas, needs, and concerns about the tightening workforce, scarce childcare, expanding housing needs, and strategic economic growth.

The foundation of human life is safety. As a community we bring out the best in our residents when they feel safe and secure in their surroundings.


Even the most beautiful structures and perfectly planned spaces need the water, waste water, electricity, and more to enhance life the way they're intended. It all comes at a cost, so strategic implementation and forward thinking is essential.


We all know South Dakota winters aren't kind to our streets and roads, and bad roads aren't kind to our transportation modes. Beyond that, practical solutions for helping people get to where they need to go and want to go in their mode of choice is essential to Sioux Falls's future.


Physical and mental health are some of the most important aspects of living a joyful life. Continued awareness, creative involvement, and inclusive opportunities will only help us all live happier, healthier, longer.


Economic development encompasses many aspects of growth and development, especially for Sioux Falls being a regional hub and the state's largest city. More isn't always better. Intentional planning and regional partnerships will support growing Sioux Falls in a way that preserves the quality of life here that we've all come to know and love.


Speaking of quality of life, we are blessed with some of the most amazing parks and recreation opportunities in the area. As a community, we've shared time and time again that we love this about our city, so let's keep making it a priority for our collective wellbeing and enjoyment. 



Get involved

Thanks for your help! We'll be in touch soon.

Disrupt is an information exchange designed to energize, inform, and empower people in the HR field.


Once in a while an event series is born that shakes things up, it makes you think differently, it leaves you inspired. That event is DisruptHR.

The USF Alumni Association is partnering with various academic departments to offer a mentorship program to a limited number of junior or senior majors within the areas of Business, Media Studies and Exercise Science. USF alumni will be matched with selected students from those majors for the mentorship experience. The goal of the mentorship program is for USF alumni to mentor students as they transition out of college into the workforce or graduate school.

A seasoned sculpt instructor and lifelong athlete, Miranda is known for her intense workouts, relentless sequences, and positive encouragements. 

Miranda believes the most important victories are within - not on the scale or in the fitting room. She’s devoted to self-reflection and emotional growth just as much, if not more, than physical wellness.
