Rapid City mayoral candidates explain why they should be elected

Posted:

For the past several days, Candidate Mark Kirkeby and Incumbent Sam Kooiker answered some of the big questions facing voters.

Now we ask them our final question.

Why should Rapid City voters elect you and not your opponent?

"I think there is a clear contrast in this election. I'm the only candidate in the election that has laid out a vision, and that vision is for positive people friendly, people focused government. My opponent has also laid out a vision and that is to oppose mine." Said Kooiker.

"My qualifications, my experience, and my lifetime involvement within our community offers a diverse background. So serving the last 10 years with The Salvation Army, I'm certainly aware of the good coming in as well as the supportive hand, that helping hand that we are able to give to our citizens. It boils down to priorities within leadership style being respectful of one another.Having a backbone to actually make a decision as well as going out of your way to meet your friends and neighbors and being actively engaged in our community." Said Kirkeby.

Elections for the candidates will be held June 4th.
