Mayoral candidates discuss their management styles


For the next several days, Candidate Mark Kirkeby and Incumbent Sam Kooiker will continue to answer some of the big questions facing voters.

This time we ask them the about their management styles and how they plan to run city hall.

Describe your management style as mayor.Whats the best way to run city hall?
"I am the only candidate in this race that has management experience. And the only candidate in this race with management and leadership experience together." Said Kooiker."I think that is a key differentiation in the race. I have extensive private sector management in addition to my time as mayor and time in City Council."
"I think the best way to run city hall is to be yourself." Said Kirkeby."I've been very fortunate over the last half a dozen years on the county commission, certainly 5 years serving as a local chairman in the legislature. I do have a reputation for working well with others, you do develop a consensus, you get along, I have worked with hundreds of legislatures."
Next we discuss Rapid City unemployment and how the candidates will work to lower the rate even more.
